Remove Your browser is managed by your organization

You may have noticed that when you open the settings of your browser, a message appears with the text “Your browser is managed by your organization”. Also when you open other pages in the browser, a message “This setting is managed by your organization” becomes visible. This happens because a certain policy or setting is enabled on your web browser.

If you are part of an organization, your administrator may apply different settings/policies. However, if you are not part of an organization and see such a message on your personal computer, it may irritate you. But there is nothing to worry about. Fortunately, there is a built-in feature in Windows 10 or Windows 11 that can help you get rid of this message for both Google Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge.

Remove “Your browser is managed by your organization”

This type of message may appear because some registry keys and their values related to applied policies are present in the Registry Editor of Windows 10 or Windows 11. So you just need to, first, view the list of applied policies and then access and delete the registry keys and values related to these policies.

Before proceeding, you should create a Windows restore point so that you can undo the changes if something goes wrong.
