    How to revoke extra screen time provided to child


    This question was asked poorly a few years ago, and it got a poor answer. He clarified his question and it received no response and the thread was subsequently closed. So I'm asking it again in hopes that we can get a good answer here:


    Here are the scenarios: My son use up his time for the day, and requested an extension. I received the email and fat fingered 8 hours instead of 1 hour. I would like to revoke or undo the 8 hour time extension. Another parent had granted extra time, but then found his child didn't have chores done, and wanted to revoke that child's time extension.


    Here is the question: How do I revoke or undo a time extension?


    Currently when I go to a child's screen time limits page, it does not show any information about extensions granted. It would be nice to see the extensions in history and current active time extensions with the ability to cancel them. Once cancelled, the device should just act like any other device when time is up.

  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. Revoke screen time extension

    To clarify, I know how to set time that a child can be online, and I know how to approve our request to extend time on a one off basis.

    What I am looking for is a way to easily revoke an approved extension after the extension was given.

    For example, let's say I give my child one hour of Internet a day. At the end of the one hour my child asks for a two hour extension. I login and Grant that extension. After 30 minutes I realize the child hasn't done their chore and want to end their Internet
    session.

    how do I revoke the extra time that was approved?

    Windows 10 Screen Time setting not working for my child

    I had this exact problem and these are the steps I took to get the issue resolved:

    • Navigate to family safety settings and remove the child from the family having issues.
    • Login to the childs account and launch Settings (windows key + i)
    • Click the Accounts icon and select Sign in with local account instead
    • Follow the steps to change to a local account. When completed, Login back to your account (admin account)
    • Go back to the family safety settings and add your child back to the family group.
    • Access your childs email address to accept the family invitation
    • Verify the child now shows properly in the family settings and that the screen times are still correct.
    • Login to the childs account and launch Settings (windows key + i)
    • Click the Accounts icon and select Sign in with microsoft account instead
    • Your family settings should now take affect.

    I know this is pretty tedious, but like I said, it worked for me. If you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting support and they can help walk you through the steps to get it resolved.
