When you first installed Windows 10, you were asked if you were a person or an organization when you first signed up with Windows 10. Most of us log in as a person. However, sometimes Windows might go wrong and think that the PC is being managed by an organization despite setting the user as a person, thus displaying the error and limiting access to some Windows settings such as Windows Update.
If you legally own your Windows 10 and it only belongs to you, then follow the steps below to get rid of the error. If you are not licensed and owned by your company or other organization, you should consult your IT representative or manager before making any changes to the group policy that we are about to edit.
How to remove the “Some settings are managed by your organization” message in Windows 10
If you have this problem, you will notice that in some locations, especially in the Windows 10 Settings app, a red message will appear showing “some settings are managed by your organization” at the top.
There are two solutions that we discovered. If the first doesn’t work for you, try the second fix. Here is the first solution to get rid of the problem with the Group Policy Editor on Windows 10.
- Go to the start menu. Scribe gpedit.msc .
- Right click and select Execute as an administrator (important).
- In the Local Group Policy Editor window, in the left pane, find the following setting.
Configuración del equipo> Plantillas administrativas> Componentes de Windows> Compilaciones de datos y vista previa
- When selected Data compilations and preview , in the right pane, double-click Allow telemetry .
- In the window Allow telemetry recently opened, select On.
- At the bottom, in Choices , select » 3 – Complete «.
- Click on Apply and Then in To accept .
- Double click “Allow Telemetry” again.
- This time select Not configured .
Step 8-9 is to ensure that “allow telemetry” remains disabled so that your usage data is not sent to Microsoft.
Go back to the Windows Update settings page. The error message “Some settings are managed by your organization” should now be gone and you can now make changes to the Windows Update settings.
Solution 2: if the above solution doesn’t work for you
If changing the group policy method above doesn’t work well for you, try changing your network ID from the system to your home computer. Some users have reported that changing the network ID solved the problem of “some settings are managed by your organization” in Windows 10. Here’s how to do it.
- Go to the start menu.
- Scribe system and open it.
- In the left pane, go to Advanced system settings .
- Go to the tab Name of the team .
- Click on Network ID .
- In the “Join a domain or workgroup” window, select ” This is a home computer, it is not part of a business network «.
- Click Next.
- Restart your computer.
This should fix the problem if your Windows 10 has somehow been pre-configured as if it were on a domain rather than a home network.
