  1. I don't want Microsoft Family features on a computer I bought for my business


    I've spent 3 hours trying to make this laptop useable for people in my business. I've gone through the annoying steps of removing family members and all that GARBAGE. Now I'm trying to switch to a local account under settings like the tutorials say to do and that option is not available under my settings>accounts. I am taking this computer back to where I purchased it and demanding a refund since IT IS UNUSEABLE TO ME IN ITS CURRENT STATE tomorrow morning if I don't get help by then.


    I bought a computer, not a license to sell my info or be policed

    :)

    Hi,

    Microsoft Family Safety is a free parental monitoring app to help make it easier to keep your kids safe online. With Family Safety, you can give them some independence but still keep tabs on their computer activities. Family Safety allows you to:

    • See which websites your kids have visited, and which apps and games they’ve used
    • Block or allow websites, apps, games, or other content.
    • Limit the amount of time they can spend on the PC

    Since you never set up Microsoft family features on your computer, we suggest that you follow the steps on this

    link
    to turn off the family settings in Windows 10.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.
