I am a bit confused as to what you want to do here. What do you mean when you say you want to use as a personal computer? Do you mean you just want to use it for your own personal use but it is configured some other way?

This computer is for meeting computer you need a adminisrtation pin to use it,Google will provide it but you have to pay to have administration rights.I want to restore it to a home computer.I had it that way but I did a factory restore on it and it went back to a meeting computer,I didnt know it would

I think you have Chromebox for Meetings which is different than a regular chrome box.

As far as I know you cannot turn the chromebox for meetings into a regular chromebox as it is a different device. You should still be able to use it though. Is there a specific function you want to do and cannot?
