    Remove "some settings are managed by Org" in Windows Update


    Another thread, in this section remove msg in Windows Update Solved - Windows 10 Forums, is marked solved so I started this one.
    Win 10 Pro FCO .19 have the message in the title. Others have edited their reg for metered option; as you can see from screen shot I have different options in the policies. How they got there I do not know except for the "exclude WU drivers..."
    Can I remove the managed msg by deleting the reg key "ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate" DWord?

    Hello chideock, :)

    The ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate DWORD is set to 0 in that registry key by default, so that wouldn't be the issue.

    Since "View configured update polices" doesn't have anything listed, you might see if clicking on "Check for updates" in Windows Update may refresh and clear the "some settings are managed by Org" message.

    The fix in that thread is specifically for removing the 'managed...' message when it was caused by ticking the policy box to 'allow updates over metered connections' in the Advanced settings for Windows Update. That creates a Mobile Device Management policy which I found can be removed by following these instructions.

    You don't show that particular policy so that fix doesn't apply in your case.

    @Brink has already said "It's gotta be a bug. " . What you are seeing may be another aspect of this bug, or it may be another related one.

    In general, group polices have to be set to 'not configured' (which deletes their values from the registry) to remove their related 'managed..' messages.

    Brink & Bree. Thank you for your thoughts. Here is a screen shot after running "Check for Updates"

    It appears that it may just be a false message from the bug.

    To verify, double check to see if you have any group policies enabled.

    You can remove all Windows Update policies, that should reset them to default.

    Code:
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsStore\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsStore\WindowsUpdate" /f

    Ok did that and got this: "Prevent usage of OneDrive for file storage"-Enabled. That's the only one enabled. I did that awhile ago since I did not want to use OneDrive.

    That policy wouldn't affect the message in Windows Update.

    You might also check what TairikuOkami posted above to see if you may have manually set one of those polices in the registry.
