    How to always allow certain apps when screentime is turned on


    Apple Screentime has an 'allow certain apps' feature where you can select certain apps that can still be used when the screen time restrictions are turned on. So for eg I can allow my kids to still use their Spotify and FaceTime apps when their screentime restriction is tuned on. Does Microsoft Family Safety have this feature? I would like to be able to restrict my kids from using their laptop but still be able to access certain apps such as Spotify.

    :)

    How to allow an app to turn on bluetooth

    Greetings,
    I would like to know if it is possible for an application turn on bluetooth on my Windows 10 Home 64 bit desktop PC.

    PC is a HP Slimline 290-a0002a desktop, MB is NewarkP, Processor Celeron J5005 (Gemini Lake) with integrated Intel UHD Graphics 600, 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM, 1TB SATA HDD.

    My request stems from a requirement to run an android application on my pc. The app is named LeFun Health and is used with a wristband tracker. I am running Bluestacks 4 and it works well with other android app but the LeFun app hangs at the "Turning on bluetooth" stage. It may be in the app itself, but I have tried starting the app with BT turned on and off in win10 and neither situation allows me past that stage.



    Any advice, suggestions greatly appreciated.

  3. Only allow certain websites option missing


    • According to microsoft.com you are supposed to have this option why is it missing from windows 10????


    • Websites is where you can turn on website restrictions for your child. You can choose to block or allow specific sites and to restrict websites rated beyond a certain age. If you have very young children, you can also
      choose to only allow them to visit websites you've decided are safe.
