    I have a new laptop and I want to give my child who is already in my Microsoft Family access. How do it? I don't want to send him an invitation because he already exists.

    Adding an existing family account child to a new laptop

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    As you have mentioned that your child’s account is already linked to Microsoft Family, you can add your child’s account to your laptop by following the steps from the section
    Add an existing child account on your PC to your family from the article

    Add members to your Microsoft family.

    However, for additional information refer to the article
    Set up accounts
    .

    Hope it helps.

    I have a new laptop (Win 10) and I want to give my child who is already in my Microsoft Family access. How do it? I don't want to send him an invitation because he already exists.

  4. Adding an existing family account child to a new laptop

    adding an existing account to family as a child

    I am trying to add an existing account to my family as a child account. I have gotten as far as sending an invitation to his gmail account, and he has logged on and accepted the invitation. Now the problem. On one computer screen, it now lists him as
    a child in the family, but on another screen at the same time, it says that the status in pending until he accepts the invitation to join. Until this is resolved, I cannot set parental controls. Any ideas? I have already waited about an hour for the screens
    to sync.
