    Acting like a Child Account


    My account is now acting like a Child account.


    It is limiting me - the adult and Family Settings Organizer - on EVERYTHING: web browsing, screen time, applications, etc. Recently, when I tried using Firefox logged in on MY account, a window popped up "Ask for Permission - Microsoft Family Features" saying I needed to ask an adult for permission to use Firefox. I said "Ask by email" and subsequently received an email saying my son wanted to use Firefox. Again, it was I that wanted to use Firefox, but the email indicated that my son wanted to use it. Another instance was when my son's normal screen time had expired. When I tried to sign into the laptop undermy login, a window popped up indicating time had expired, I accepted "My Parent is Here," and the system responded by saying that since I am also the Administrator, blah, blah, blah and I was locked out until the next day, assuming I happen to try and get on during his screen time.


    Again, I am logged into the computer Windows 10 Pro laptop, not my son. I deleted all family settings with the laptop off and nothing worked. I reapplied a new family specifically to my son with no screen times, no limitations, but I am obviously still having the problem.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Child Account Get Greyed Out

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I did the following instead.

    I have another laptop, 2 weeks old, with Windows 10 Home on it.

    On that one, I tried the same steps with the child account, and got the exact same results.

  3. Child account

    I did set up a Child account, I did fallow all the steps window ask, the account say that the child is in the family, when I tried to log, give me the message "The Profile Service service Failed The Sign-in. User Profile cannot be loaded".

    Answering your questions:

    • Did you make any changes to the child account prior to the issue? No, I did not make any changes.
    • Since when you are facing this issue? Right from the start. I never got to login.
    • Are you able to login with other child accounts on the computer? No
    I suggest you to restart the computer once and check if you are able to login to the computer. I did, the same problem, I do not have any problem with my account or my wife.

    Thank you for your help.

    David.
