• incorrect “managed by your organization”


    My pc is a high-end Dell about 2 years old.  Chrome has always worked well, as far as I can tell, and I’ve kept it (as well as its cousins on three other pcs – 3 running Win 10 and one Win 11) up to date – especially recently with all the emergency updates.

    Only on this pc has Chrome developed a block to my activity:  It now tells me that my Chrome is “managed by your organization”.  A web search tells me that there were many with this problem several years ago.  I’ve tried some tips, but the linked utilities were not available.

    How can I return this instance to my control.  I am a home user, not associated with any organization.

      The “managed by your organization” message indicates there is a Group Policy setting (if you have Win Pro) or a Registry setting (for Home or Pro) that is the cause of the error. Consider any of these setting you have changed and see if it pertains to web connections/search, etc.

      If the message is a link, clicking on it may give you some indication where the setting is.

        I get that because I set up a policy to stop the nagging update reminders. The policy was set in
        Might be worth a look to see if anything’s there.

        I’m not using Firefox – just Chrome, although occasionally Edge.

      This is what I get when I click on “Your browser is being managed by your organization” which is also a link.  I have to admit I don’t have a clue what they’re referring to.  I’m a home user and don’t even have a LAN.
