    Some Settings are Hidden or Managed by Your Organization


    In PC Settings under...

    Apps,
    - "Apps & Features"

    Under "Choose where to get apps"
    (Pic below)
    Installing apps only from Microsoft Store helps protect your device"
    The selection box is grayed out and set on "Anywhere"

    Personalization,
    - "Lock Screen", "Start",

    Accounts,
    - "Sign in Options",

    Privacy,
    - "General",
    - "Diagnostics & Feedback",
    - "Activity history",

    I have red text "Some Settings are Hidden or Managed by Your Organization"


    Anything I tried does not remove it. (Telemetry or not)
    Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Try
    https://www.askvg.com/fix-choose-whe...s-10-settings/

    If you have Home, you'll need to use the registry solution.

    Then consider- what might have set this...?

    This popped up after some upgrade once upon a time perhaps the in the second half of last year.

    That link was helpful, thank you. But so far worked only for "Apps & Features"

    Rereading your first post you are referring to 3 other cases.

    I suggest you search as I did to find that one. It appears something you have done or used has changed the registry in these cases in the same way as setting a group policy to restrict those would.

    You may also find Policy Plus (free) useful- somewhat like the group policy editor but with a Find option.
    Thus you have two approaches- a search engine- and using Policy Plus to identlfy a relevant policy.

    Consider what may have made these changes. E.g. what 3rd party utilities hav you used that could have done this?

    Screenhots would help showing what is restricted, as you did for the first.

    You could reset group policies:

    Local- user only- or all (see link after the main text)
    Reset Local Group Policy Editor Settings to Default in Windows 10
