    Windows 10 tells me that "My adminstrator" wont allow me to open apps.

    Im trying to open the app "Task manager", but windows keeps telling me that my "administrator" wont allow me to.

    Here is the exact message that Windows tells me:
    "Task manager has been disabled by your administrator"

    Plese help, i really need this app to work.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Check Group Policy Editor to see if it has been disabled. Go to the Search Box and type Edit Group Policy. Click on it when it displays; this will open Local Group Policy Editor.

    Under User Configuration, select Administrative Templates. Then select All Settings at the bottom of the list.

    Click on "Setting" in the Title Bar to sort the list alphabetically.

    Scroll down the list and open "Remove Task Manager".

    Most likely this is set to "Enabled". Change it to "Disabled".

    Select OK, close Policy Editor.

    Task Manager should now be available.

    I hope this helps!
