How to Enable or Disable Share Any Window from the Taskbar in Windows 11

Windows 11 introduced a feature that allows users to easily share a window while in a meeting in Microsoft Teams by clicking on a share button directly from the taskbar. This experience was built to prevent you from jumping back and forth between applications and is extremely useful when sharing individual windows instead of the entire screen.

However, some users may not see this handy feature and may think that it is related to the new version of Microsoft Teams. Well, this is not true and the option can be enabled or disabled on the Windows settings. In this blog post, I will show you how to do that.
