Windows 10 | Disable ‘Nearby Sharing’

Trying to disable all the options and settings within Windows 10 can be a little tedious sometimes as settings and methods to configure these settings can be split across different areas and different management platforms. One of the issues i came across was trying to disable the ‘Nearby Sharing’ feature within the action pane in Windows 10 1803. After some searching i followed the steps below:

  1. Open up Group Policy Editor
  2. Navigate to:
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy
  3. Find the following setting:
  4. Double click on the above setting set it to Disabled
  5. Restart the machine and the ‘Nearby Sharing’ will be grey’ed out
