    Family Settings and older version of windows 10


    I have set up laptops for my kids, I have setup the family account and family settings for each of them. However my kids laptops are not capable of updating to the most current version of Windows 10 due to lack of space. They are running version 1703 and i cant go any later with them. Under my family account it says for family activity reporting to update their computers. I have them updated to latest possible so how do I continue to monitor their activity and family settings now? My computer is updated and while they are logged into their profile on mine it monitors their usage but now I cannot monitor them on their own devices which is the whole point. Any advise on how to continue to use the family settings for my kids laptop with older versions of Windows 10, they worked when these older versions were the latest.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Is there still an official way to drop back to an older version of windows, I honestly don't mind using a 3rd party way. If possible, can you list step by step instructions or a link to an easy to use website. Thanks.

    Setting up Family safety settings in Windows

    Hello Ajay,

    I realize that you are trying to setup the Microsoft Family Safety settings.

    • Which version of operating system are you using to setup the Family Safety?
    If you are using the Windows 10 then I suggest you to refer the below information and check if it helps.

    It’s easy to share your Windows 10 PC with family members. Add family members using "Add a family member" from your PC's Settings, and they’ll be able to use that PC as well. And you're always in control. You can allow or block them from using
    a PC at any time.

    Add kids to your family to help them stay safer online. Adults in the family can view reports of kids’ online activity, limit how long and when they use their devices, and help make sure they don't see inappropriate websites, apps, or games.

    I suggest you to create a family safety account in Windows 10
    and check if it helps.

    Refer: Set up family features in Windows 10

    Hope this information helps. Keep us posted to help you better.
