How to Remove “Managed by your organization” in the Chrome menu on Windows 11?

Recently I tried to change the settings in Google Chrome browse on Windows 11 computer. I noticed “Managed by your organization” at the bottom of the menu, as shown in the screenshot below. However, I had not applied any policy to the Chrome browser, so I was surprised by seeing this message.

I deleted some Windows registry keys and the directory where Google Update writes cached cloud policies. Finally, this message disappeared from my Chrome browser on Windows 11.

This message will also appear when you access chrome://settings/help page on the Chrome browser.
