  1. Can't change birthdate


    Hello, when I was inputting my age I accidentally put in the wrong date, 2010 instead of 2001. Now Microsoft thinks I need a parent, and isn't allowing me to edit my birthdate. I've searched everywhere, and the only answers I'm seeing are to go edit it which I can't and to go to this Microsoft support page that supposedly helps me. The page says:"How to change the date of birth varies depending on the current listed age and local laws.Use our interactive tool to help guide you to the right steps."and then there's a button saying 'start' which just goes to a search function for the FAQ.

    :)

    Changing a Microsoft account from an (incorrectly entered) adult birthdate to the correct child's birthdate

    The links provided in the above response pertain to an account which is already setup as a child. That is not my situation.

    My issue is going from an ADULT account to a CHILD account. Currently, the account is setup (incorrectly) as an adult account. I would like to update the birthdate to reflect that this is a child account.

    This is an easy scenario to test:

    • Setup a new Microsoft account with a birthdate that makes you an adult.
    • Log off and then log back in
    • Go to your profile and attempt to change the birth date to make you a child.
    • The system will prevent you from making this change.
    Any suggestions?

    Computer Birthdate

    If the computer administrator's birthdate is listed as a minor, how do I change the birthdate to have an adult able to use the computer properly?
