My diagnostic and usage data in windows 10 is greyed out and set at basic. I want to have control over entry. I am running windows Home.

I have been told that this can be solved by deleting the binary key "Allow Telemetry" at the following registry key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Data Collection.

My question is, is it safe to delete the "Allow Telemetry" Key.

Thanks opera for your response.  I know I can change the settings through the reg key, ie to either 0.1.2.or 3 but it still remains greyed out. I would like to have ownership of this key directly, not just through the registry.

I have run across these issues also  ''some settings are hidden or managed by your organization'' that have popped up with versions 1703 & 1709 in fact 1709 was so balled up I went back to 1703 an changed advanced updates to the Business Branch type an delayed it 365 days (won't go into all those reason but trust me they were more than just a few)

What get's me is I am the Administrator, I am not with any organization an this is my personal home computer that I use every day. It would be nice to have control over it. I've found Local Group Policy Editor was able to revert some things back to the way they were but not all (ex. the lock screen was grayed out in settings an other personal settings after the Fall Update) was able to revert that back using LGPE some sites pointed to the LGPE in 'toast' setting but they did nothing to revert the

''some settings are hidden or managed by your organization''

I realize this is an older post an am in hopes someone else has 'solved' this or at least addressed it.
