Windows 10 brings its own share of inherent bugs and post-update issues despite being Microsoft's most successfully adopted desktop operating system (OS) in history. Its substantially high adoption rate has been credited to the company's decision to offer free Windows 10 upgrade to owners of Windows 7 and 8.1.

Meanwhile, some users are reportedly facing system lockdowns on their PCs, wherein they are unable to access certain options in the OS settings due to an inherent bug that throws up an unexpected error message: "Some settings are managed by your organization". It baffles to note that the issue persists even after attempting to unlock the settings using exclusive administrator account with elevated privileges.

It is ascertained that an inherent glitch in the privacy settings is the root cause of this issue. However, the issue can be resolved in a few simple steps as outlined below:

Steps to fix 'Some settings are managed by your organization' message in Windows 10

Step 1: Launch Start Menu by hitting the Windows Key. Type in gpedit.msc and right-click the app from the search results. Choose Run as Administrator from the context menu.

Step 2: In the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), go to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Data Collection and Preview Builds.

Step 3: Find the Allow Telemetry item and double-click it to edit the policies.

Step 4: Change the setting to Enabled. Change the drop-down menu entry to 3-Full and click Apply.

Step 5: Now open the item again and change its Setting to Not configured and hit the Save button.

That's it. The message should no longer stop you from accessing various system settings in Windows 10.
