  1. Family Safety not working with Windows 11


    We have Windows 11. We are not able to add my son’s new computer to our Family Safety profile. The instructions only offer guidance for Windows 10. We cannot downgrade to Windows 10 as we just bought the computer and it came with W11. We have removed and then added my son to our family group. Thoughts on how to get Family Safety to add his computer as a device we can manage screen limits etc?

    :)

    Family Safety not working with Windows 11

    Family Safety doesn't work on power saver

    I tried everything you suggested, but nothing worked. I think the problem is that power saver restricts running Family Safety and other apps from running in the background. I can manually enable an app in the Settings, but there's no such app like Family
    Safety in the list.
