I clicked the allow your organization to Manage checkbox. How do I undo that?
To remedy your problem, first uninstall Office. We will assume you are on Windows 10.
- Click your Start Menu > Settings (Gear Icon) > Accounts > Email & Accounts > Remove the @illinois.edu account
- Do the same for the Start Menu > Settings (Gear Icon) > Accounts > Access work or school > Remove the @illinois.edu account
- Next log into Outlook on the web Portal: //portal.office.com/account > Click View apps & Devices > There will be a Devices Drop down, click that and Sign out of your impacted computer.
- Restart your computer and Re-install office while not checking the box to allow your organization to Manage. That will disconnect it from the Organization.
