When i go to settings, i want to enable side load apps but at the top it says *some of these settings are hidden or managed by your organisation. I don't know what this means or how to fix it. I cant click on the options at all

@Fatema2, Welcome to HP Support Coommunity!


Follow the steps below-

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Update & security.
  3. Click on For developers.
  4. Under "Use developer features," select the Sideload apps option.

  5. Click Yes to confirm the risks involved running an app outside the Windows Store.

  6. Restart your computer if applicable to complete the task.

You may have noticed that there is a "Developer mode" option too, both the "Sideload apps" and "Developer mode" will allow you to sideload apps, with the difference that the "Developer mode" will also enable other developer-specific features.


It's important to note that it's not recommended to sideload apps as there is danger involved that could expose and harm your device. If you must sideload apps, you should only install those from a trusted source.


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
