If you get a message indicating that you need to check with IT or System Admin, despite this being your personal account and you being the admin of the device, you will then need to perform the following steps:

Step 1: Open windows settings. Click Start Menu, then click on the gear icon on the left. 
Step 2: Select Accounts
Step 3: Click on the Access work or School tab on the left-hand side.
Step 4: Click on the businesses account/email (school or work), then click on Disconnect or Remove.(Removing these accounts will not actually remove your organization email from individual apps.

***If businesses account/email (school or work) has not been previously added: click on the Connect tabset up a work or school account, click Doneand then follow Step 4***
