    Microsoft Family Screen Time

    Hi Laurel,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.

    This could happen when the child account fails to sync with the server. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works:

    • Open
      File Explorer
      and navigate to the following location:
    • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls


      Note:
      The above mentioned directory is hidden, copy and paste the same location on the search bar in the File Explorer to access it.
    • Delete the contents in the
      \\settings
      directory of the Parental Controls folder.
    • Reboot the machine to see if the issue persists.

    If the issue persists, you may want to remove the child account from Microsoft family and add it again.

    • To know how to remove an account from Microsoft Family, refer:

    • To know how to add an account to Microsoft Family, refer:

      Add members to your family group

    Regards,

    Removing Microsoft Family Account

    I cant get access to any of my kids in the Family Account feature. There is only the ability to 'add members' not remove.

    A moderator in response to another suggested the following fix.

    "We appreciate your response. To further troubleshoot your concern with Microsoft Family Protection, we suggest that you disable the Family Safety feature using Command Prompt. To do so, Follow these steps:

    1. Press Windows key+ X, then click on Command Prompt (Admin). If ymanually ou are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Yes.
    2. In the Command Prompt window, enter these commands:
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Shell\FamilySafetyMonitor" /Disable

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Shell\FamilySafetyRefresh" /Disable

    3. Restart your PC.

    Unfortunately for me, this does not work.

    I get an 'error access is denied', ERROR: Invalid syntax. '/Change' option is not allowed more than '1' time(s) and finally ERROR: The specified task name "Microsoft\Windows\Shell\FamilySafetyRefresh" does not exist in the system.

    How do i solve this problem?

    Thanks, Paul

  4. Can I remove myself from Microsoft Family ?

    Microsoft Family

    Hi,

    It could be because of the settings on the Family and Safety feature or the account you're using is added to a Family. With that being said, we suggest that you check if the account that you are using is a part of the
    Family list. To check on it, go to Cortana
    and search for Family Options.



    To remove your account to the Family, you may follow the steps below:

    • Use the Adult account to log in using this link.
    • Click on the Family tab.
    • On the account that you want to remove, click More > Remove from family.
    • Then click Remove to confirm.

    Let us know how it goes and feel free to get back to us if you need further assistance.
