    Workaround

    We are aware that the notice is shown to users who log on to a device that is running Enterprise or Education versions of Windows 10 or Windows 11 by using a local user account. If an Enterprise wants to suppress this notice, implement the following workaround.

    1. Before you apply a Windows update dated on or after March 21, 2023, create the following registry entry on the Windows 10 or Windows 11 device for each local account.

      Registry location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudExperienceHost\Intent\PersonalDataE xport
      Value name PDEShown
      Data type REG_DWORD
      Data value 1
    2. Then apply the applicable Windows updates dated on or after March 21, 2023 and then restart the device. For a list of specific Windows updates that introduced this behavior, see the More information section.

    Note This workaround will not suppress the notice for any newly created local user accounts that are created.
