  1. Family Safety Screen Time


    I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10. I created new Microsoft accounts for my kids and added those accounts to the child accounts in Windows 10. The problem is that the Family Safety screen time that was configured on the Microsoft website are not being enforced on the computer. I have set 2 hour daily timers for the children but they are able to use the computer beyond that 2 hour period. Is anyone else running into this problem and/ or has any figured out how to fix this bug.

    :)

  2. Revoke screen time extension

    Hi,

    I realize that you want to revoke family safety screen time extension. I will try to help you with this issue.

    As you are the administrator of the family safety account you can choose to add the screen time and revoke the screen time for the child account.

    Admins/Adults in the family can manage family settings online at account.microsoft.com/family, and changes will be applied to any Windows 10 device the child signs in to.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.

  3. Refresh screen time in Windows 10

    I am already past the setting up of Family Safety, links to how to setup Family Safety do not help.

    After Family Safety has been setup, is there any way to force a refresh of the Screen Time schedule so when it is changed, the change will take affect? Right now it seems it takes 24 hours for a change to Screen Time to take affect. I am seeking how to
    over ride this 24 hour wait and implement a change to the Screen Time schedule immediately.

    Telling me to un-configure and reconfigure the entire solution is unacceptable.
