    Microsoft Apps being blocked by system admin


    So basically when I launch an Microsoft App such as Xbox Game Bar, Windows Media Player and Photos, the following message pops up: Contact your system administrator for more info.I know that I own the device I'm using and nobody else has used it. I've also looked everywhere on my computer and searched up tutorials which all tell me to change strings in Regedit, which doesn't work.

    :)

    App being Blocked by System Admin

    Morning Crew!
    Ive been using Microsofts' "Your Phone" app for quite some time. For some reason recently it's been blocked by system admin ...which is the message I'm being given. I am the system admin, so I'm unsure what got changed. I've tried changing the policies through regedit, tried right clicking and "unchecking Unblock" which a lot of sites recommended but I don't even have that feature. I'm currently running Win Ver 20H2 OS Build 19042.804. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Also, look at the Related Tutorials at the bottom of the Tutorial as there may be something there that may answer your question.

    I hope this helps.
