Microsoft Edge can display a Managed by your organization message when you open the More menu at 3 dots in the upper right corner. By clicking this link, you will be redirected to the following page in your Edge browser:
This page will display:
Microsoft Edge is managed by your organization. If you use Microsoft Edge at school or work, it may be managed, or configured and maintained, by your organization. Your organization can configure or restrict certain features, install and block extensions, monitor activity, and control how you use it. If Microsoft Edge is managed, you can view policies defined by your organization on the edge://policy page.
This means that Edge browser settings are managed through Group Policy by your system administrator. If you open
edge://policy you will see the policies that are applied.
If Edge is not managed by IT administrator, you will see the message – Microsoft Edge is not operated by any company or organization.

Why do I see the message “Managed by your organization”?
On a Windows 11/10 home PC, third-party software may have set an Edge policy. As such, you may see a notice that Edge is “managed by your organization”. In most cases, software or a program that sets these policies can be considered safe. For example, an app can use a policy to integrate more seamlessly with Edge. Thus, it will display the message, ensuring that you are aware that Edge’s behavior is modified by someone other than you.
