    Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization.


    Win 10 pro 1703 15063.332 32 elderly desktop

    Apologies for being the umpteenth poster on this topic but I can't find a viable fix. I see the message in Update and Security. I've tried to follow suggestions to go to gpedit/Administrative Templates/All Settings/Filter Options, but there is no "Filter Options" option. I am not an insider.

    I note that Dachina has made a document on the subject. Is there a url to that document?

    Hi- is there a * before Settings?

    If so I think it was not resolved- but in this case it wasn't on that screen:
    *Some settings are hidden or managed by your company - Windows 10 Forums

    My collection of instances is e.g. here: #3
    No guarantee it's relevant to your case..

    This 'Solved' thread may help, it has the same problem as you. Though the 'solution' seems a little.... well... unexpected

    Daschina, Thanks for your quick reply. There is an asterisk before "Settings." I'll open your reference after supper.

    Bree, I will follow your lead.

    Update:
    Well, I tried everything in both references. No luck. I did download and ran Tweaking.com-Windows Repair, which was pretty thorough. Found a few problems but the *Some. . . message remains.

    I note that at the bottom of your picture, it says "* We'll ask you to download updates", have you somehow configured your system to download, but not install updates? If that's the case, then I believe that message appears because you are using a non-standard configuration.

    I have it set to notify me about updates. That gives me an opportunity to postpone or download at my convenience.

    Yes, and i'm saying that I think the message is because of that setting. That setting is using group policy, and when group policy settings are enabled, that message is shown. In other words, it's doing what it's supposed to do.

    Ok, I've removed all options that I can. Some, like "Give me updates . . ." are grayed out because of The Message. I think I'm going to have to live with it until I'm in the mood to completely reinstall Windows. Maybe 2020. There are some other possible sources of The Message: Classic Start Menu, Windows Live Mail, Winaero Tweaker.

    Oh, for interest(?) - I've just remembered one thread where I've seen that message:
    ‘We'll ask you to download updates, except when updates
    are required to keep Windows running smoothly. In that
    case, we ll automatically download those updates.


    It occurs when you have your connection set as metered, and you're using the Creator's edition.

    - should be nothing to do with the *Some settings...

    - which I suspect is nothing more than a minor curiosity.
