    Windows 10 policies unwillingly managed

    (Please forgive me if I do anything wrong I am new.)

    I have encountered an issue where when I go to almost any setting and it will say some settings may be hidden or managed by your organisation but this laptop isn't (meant) to be managed as it is my personal one, i tried looking around in group policies (as administrator) and couldn't find anything please can someone help me as I cannot access a lot of settings, thank you. :)

    Windows 10 : 2004 / 19.04.329

    This is expected if you are using O&O ShutUp10 or similar tool. Otherwise, it is a problem.

    Welcome to tenforums.

    some settings may be hidden or managed by your organisation
    There have been many posts referring to this- once again, it means that either:
    - you have created a group policy one way or another, whether via the group policy editor, or by making equivalent registry changes
    - or some program has made these changes.

    History: (so often omitted by posters):
    - how long has this been so?
    - can you think of any cause- for example, have you used any means to limit 'telemetry' for fear of privacy issues?

    If you have used such a privacy tool, they have a reset option which you might try.

    Do you have Home, Pro or something else?

    If you have Pro- see

    Typo, timewarp or premonition?

    There are some other threads on the subject that might also help you.

    Forward planning, perhaps- anticipation of a future problem?
