I just got my laptop today on the 6th of August 2022, I have been personalizing my laptop with a wallpaper and wanted to change my lock screen wallpaper too. When I clicked on personalize lock screen, I come upon a message above the button that says "Some of these settings are managed by your organization", and I am unable to change my lock screen wallpaper. This laptop is an ex-display at a well known retailer, so I'm thinking its on a certain settings still, even though he reset it in front of me. So my question is, how do I fix it so I have free control?

The restrictions come from <Domain Based Group Policy> or <Local Group Policy> settings.
(1) Edit Local Policy.
Go this path "Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization".
Disable the GP "Force a specific default lock screen image".
- Click OK.
(2) Reboot and test again ...

There are too many limitations ( policies of the previous owner [company] ) in Windows ...
Recommendation and solution
I would reinstall the system to get a clean state so you have full control !
(1) HP Consumer PCs - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool in Windows 11 and 10
( It includes all software and drivers from HP. It corresponds to the original software delivery )
