    Cannot turn off Developer mode - "managed by your organization"


    Hello everyone,

    I need assistance from someone who is knowledgeable. I'm setting up a brand new home laptop for my senior parents who only use it for browsing internet.

    Windows 10 HOME edition - Build 1803

    The setting "For Developers" is turned on and has the "Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization" notice, so I cannot turn it off. There is no "organization." This is a personal computer, new out of the box (unless someone else returned it?). How did this setting get turned on? It's perplexing. I did not turn it on. I discovered it when I was customizing all the settings. This setting should NOT be turned on for two elderly people who are nearly computer illiterate and only browse the internet.

    I have not found any other threads that deal with the "managed by your organization" problem specifically affecting the developer mode settings, therefore I do not know what to do.

    What I've tried so far:
    -Created new profile using only default windows settings - same problem in that profile
    -Uninstalled software that was possibly taking control of that setting, specifically Norton AV, which came preinstalled. I did not install it.
    -Checked registry - sub-keys that supposedly turn this setting on don't even exist
    -Updated from 1709 (installed when it arrived) to 1803 in hopes this might fix it - no change
    - This is Windows 10 HOME edition, not Pro - group policy doesn't exist, so no way to edit that
    -Changing diagnostic and usage data from Basic to Enhanced or Full (which is not wanted), does absolutely nothing

    I've already read everything I could find on the web - no solution found. There's a thread on this forum about registry edits for developer settings that claims to tell how to turn it on/off in registry, but it did not specifically say how to edit registry to turn this OFF. Or maybe I didn't understand it:
    Turn On or Off Developer Mode in Windows 10

    If I need to edit the registry to turn this off, I will need detailed instructions on what to add to turn it 'off' and how, since the registry editor is something I have minimal experience with.

    Am I going to have to install a fresh copy of Windows? I hope not. I've read reports of people reinstalling windows only to have the problem reoccur, so that might be a huge amount of wasted time and effort. I've spent a lot of time getting it set up and this is the only remaining obstacle.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much! *Smile

    :)
