Browser is managed by your organization

For some reason without warning my Edge (latest version) picked up a menu label at the bottom on the “settings” panel; "Browser is managed by your organization" and the auto fill-in password scheme stopped. It took me awhile to look for the reason and to solve it, with a boat load of erroneous bull poop answers, but at least one guy knew hat he was talking about. Using regedit scroll down this path and delete the "Edge” key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge. All will be well again.

Yup anytime you see "managed by your organization" means there are GPOs in play. GPOs are technically only available in Pro, Enterprise and Education editions, but it is possible to apply them in Home editions by manually adding the appropriate registry keys and values under SOFTWARE\Policies

I suspect a failed attempt of malware. It did not work, but did manage to add that key.

I have had this before, Its a pain, but I just ran Microsoft offline defender and it fixed it all... Strange.
I run Norton's, Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware so nothing showed up. Norton's blocked a couple things, but that's all. It may have been the big hacker in the sky, Microsoft.
