  2. Must be at least 12 years old.

    I am a child. I am 12 years old. I try to download certain stuff from the Windows Store but it says to be 12 years old to download some apps. I can't even use Cortana. Please help! I am 12, and my birthday is December 27, 2002.

    Must be at least 12 years old.

    Not sure if the above solution solved it, but I have a related issue.

    I'm a parent, and I am wondering if there is a way to get around this 12-year-old limitation via parental controls, etc..

    The reason is that there are instances where this age limit doesn't make sense. For a example, Microsoft strangely says that you have to be at least 12 years old to use Microsoft Word Mobile.

    I am a parent of 2 children, one 13 and the other 11. On my home desktop (Windows 10 Pro), MS Store allows my 13 year-old to download and install Word Mobile, but it does not allow my 11 year old. (I guess MS knows the age of my kids because they are signing
    into their accounts with their own Microsoft login, which has their personal profile).

    But it seems ridiculous that MS is saying you have to be 12 to use Word. That means until they are in 7th grade, they can't use Word?? But schools give out homework to be done in Word. MS touts itself as the educational champions (per their advertisements
    that feature elementary / junior high school teachers). But then they won't allow 6th graders to use word, because they are under 12?

    I understand that because of some research functions built into Word, maybe it would be a good idea to limit the age of children using Word. But as a parent, I've set up parental controls and net filters.. and now I want to install Word into my 11-year-old's
    account.

    But there doesn't seem to be a workaround.

    Is there some way that I can install Word and Powerpoint onto my child's account? (Powerpoint has the same problem, by the way).

    audio stopped working, windows 10

    upgraded to windows 10 by reservation few days ago... compatibility test result was fine... audio stopped working all of a sudden... tried upgrading the driver software in device manager
    but in vain... also tried these methods suggested by Microsoft help community... but the audio is still not working, neither speakers nor headphones

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to run the Playing Audio troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click on Playing Audio.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.
    • Check if issue persists.


    Method 2:

    If there no updated drivers available on the computer manufacturer’s website, then try installing it in compatibility mode. Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Follow these steps to install the drivers
    in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    • Download the audio driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘Properties’.
    • Click on the ‘Compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8/8.1 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done,
      restart the computer and check if the issue persists
