#StackBounty: #windows-10 #powershell #permissions #windows-search How to set WindowsSafeSearchSetting to Off?

Bounty: 100

When I execute Get-WindowsSearchSetting in PowerShell, it tells me that WindowsSafeSearchSetting is set to Strict.

I want to change that setting to Off, but when I execute Set-WindowsSearchSetting -SafeSearchSetting "Off", I get this error:

WindowsSafeSearchSetting: Can't choose this setting. 
It's been set by Family Safety.

I’m using an Admin PowerShell console, and I don’t have any "Family Safety" settings turned on (afaik that’s a microsoft account thing, where you can register your account as part of a family, I haven’t done that).


Get this bounty!!!
