FIXED - Cannot Change Desktop Background On Windows 10. Easiest method.

Alright, Microsoft has taken privacy policy too far with this. I faced a strange Windows 10 problem the other day. I just couldn’t change the desktop wallpaper in my personal computer which is in no way connected to any corporate network.
However, the error message thrown at me on the wallpaper window was “some settings are managed by your organization”

I quickly realized that no matter what I do, I can't change the desktop background/wallpaper on my windows 10 personal computer as I kept seeing the same message. I assume this has to do with the latest update I installed the other day. Microsoft is paranoid about windows 10 security and breaks something in the interim.

The solutions I found included changing the group policy editor or making tweaks to the registry. I didn’t want to bother with that complicated solution. I needed a quick workaround since all I need to do is just change your wallpaper.

If it has happened to you too, there is an easy way to change the wallpaper without going through changing group policies and other technical stuff. 
I learned that Windows 10 can incorrectly configure your personal PC as if it belongs to an organization and disable some settings. Sometimes even restrict you from changing wallpaper which happened in my case!

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1: 
Open the Run command, just type run in search, to find the run command. 
Or press shortcut WindowsKey + R

Step 2:
Copy and paste the command and then press enter or OK
control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

Here you can select your required wallpaper, or browse to the folder containing your required wallpaper. That's it!

You may want to save the shortcut command mentioned in the video and use it whenever you wish to change your wallpaper.

Here is a video for visual representation of the same solution. 

That should do it. The error message won’t restrict you from changing your desktop wallpaper again in Windows 10. I would wait for the next windows update hoping for the the bug to be resolved by Microsoft.
