    how to prevent child account from switching to a second local profile on edge


    how do you prevent the child from switching from his child live account profile in the latest edge to a local profile and bypass all the settings/parental controls ?

    Since it is Chromium based edge any solution available to disable that at edge/chromium level ?

    :)

    Microsoft family features - child profile not working properly

    Prakhar Khare

    I went into System Properties > Advanced and clicked
    Settings under User Profiles and deleted the user profile there.

    I followed the provided instructions and completed the steps in Windows PowerShell and rebooted, but had the same result when I tried to run Microsoft - Official Home Page (Windows
    10 suggests searching for an app in the Microsoft Store).

    Also, while PowerShell went through 100+ steps, some of them gave some errors regarding the current software being newer versions than what was trying to be installed, or errors indicating that
    requested actions could not be taken due to accounts not being logged in at the time.

    Under Settings >
    Accounts > Your info the Verify link is missing for this child's profile.

    I did try following a link that should not be there on a Windows Family Features Child account, which is
    Sign in with a local account instead and entered all of the requested account name and password info. Fortunately the task resulted in an error that indicated that it could not complete the request, so a local account was not created.

    All of this leads me to believe that the Microsoft account services are not linked or installed properly for this child account. Perhaps the most recent Windows 10 update may have corrupted the previous
    child profile (which had issues with Internet Settings cache size too low for practical internet use in Edge and IE), and may have also corrupted the Default user profile on this computer.

    I will not try to remove the child from the family, because I don't think that will resolve the issue (Microsoft seems to like to charge to add children even in troubleshooting). I will
    try the following:

    1. I will add this child's Microsoft account to another computer, and see what happens with his profile on that computer
    2. I will examine another child's account on this computer to see whether it was affected by the Edge / IE cache issue
    3. I will see whether I can enable a third child's Microsoft account on this computer and see what the result is when that account profile is created.

    Please let me know if there are other steps you recommend (other than removing his MS account from my family)

    Regards

    Mark

  4. how to prevent child account from switching to a second local profile on edge

    Child account

    I did set up a Child account, I did fallow all the steps window ask, the account say that the child is in the family, when I tried to log, give me the message "The Profile Service service Failed The Sign-in. User Profile cannot be loaded".

    Answering your questions:

    • Did you make any changes to the child account prior to the issue? No, I did not make any changes.
    • Since when you are facing this issue? Right from the start. I never got to login.
    • Are you able to login with other child accounts on the computer? No
    I suggest you to restart the computer once and check if you are able to login to the computer. I did, the same problem, I do not have any problem with my account or my wife.

    Thank you for your help.

    David.
