    Hi,


    How do I block a game that does not show up in account.microsoft.com/family under Apps and games section?

    Is there any way to add path to the exe icon in order to block it?


    Thank you.

  2. How to I add an application to "Blocked apps & games" section of Microsoft Account, Family tab

    If you login to your Microsoft Family account and choose your Family member’s profile, under the ‘Content restrictions’ tab you will be able to see the list of current Application blocks and remove a block. However, in order to block
    a specific application you must choose it from the Family member’s list of recent activity. Under the Family Member’s profile, choose
    Activity, then scroll down to see the Apps and games section. Choose Show all and block the apps you need to block.

    Hi,

    Blocking third-party browsers is an automatic side-effect of turning on the
    Block inappropriate websites
    feature. To turn this feature on, follow these steps:

    • Login using the parent account of your Microsoft family
      here
      .
    • Select your child's account.
    • Click Web browsing from the left pane, under Recent activity.
    • Switch Block inappropriate websites to On. The following description will appear:
      “To protect your child, we’ve only given them access to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. All other commonly used browsers are blocked. If you want your child to have access to other browsers, go to Apps & games page under Blocked apps."

    After following these steps, all browsers except for Edge and Internet Explorer are automatically blocked.

    Let us know if you have any other concerns about Microsoft Family.
