    It appears someone added me to a family account and put restrictions on my computer. I am very much an adult. How can someone do this without my permission? How do I find out who did this? and how do I reverse it?

    :)

  2. How to delete an adult account in the Family Settings.

    Hi,

    To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • As an adult in the family account, sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Under Your family, click
      Remove
      .
    • Click the child account you want to remove, and click Remove.
    • You will get an email confirmation once the child has been removed from the family.
    Note: If you removed a Child account, it will be tagged as an "Orphaned account" and you will need to attach another "Parent account".

    Regards.

    Merging Family accounts

    Hi,

    It's great to keep your family accounts properly for the best experience, especially for family safety. We would suggest removing the existing family accounts to let the user accounts inside it to be added to the other family account. You may refer to this
    link
    Remove members from your Microsoft family for the steps in removing a user account in the family and

    Add members to your Microsoft family for the steps in adding them to an existing family.

    Do get back to us with the results and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to post back.
