Fix Cannot change feedback frequency after Windows 10 v1803 update

My Surface Pro 3 had been updated to Windows 10 April Update 1803 version. I got multiple time of blue screen and then logged into desktop normally. However, when I opened the Settings app and went to Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback, the feedback frequency option didn’t allow to change. It just displayed “Windows Insider Program manages this option” message. I was unable to setup the basic information, enhanced and full data. How can I fix the locked problem on my tablet?

and then select the WindowsUpdate key.
* Go to its right side pane, double click on the ManagePreviewBuilds, change its value data to 1, and click on OK button to save changes. Repeat the same way to set ManagePreviewBuildsPolicyValue value* s to 1.
* Go to other location below:


Double click on the “NumberOfSIUFInPeriod” and configure the value data to 0.
* Finally restart Windows 10 to take effect. The method works fine on my PC.
