  1. Change account to child


    When I set my son up on Xboxone, I used my email and information with his gamertag.


    I need to set screen time, but cant because he is set as the “parent.”


    I tried to add another adult to my “family” on microsoft to monitor/ set screen time for him, but it didnt work either.


    I’ve read other comments that the child was able to change their gamertag but keep their skins/history by putting their email address to the new gamertag- i need more explicit directions! Where do I go first/ do first?????


    I was thrilled to learn I can set a timer, but having the hardest time doing it!!!!!


    thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. 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.

    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.
