  2. How to delete an adult account in the Family Settings.

    Hi,

    To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • As an adult in the family account, sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Under Your family, click
      Remove
      .
    • Click the child account you want to remove, and click Remove.
    • You will get an email confirmation once the child has been removed from the family.
    Note: If you removed a Child account, it will be tagged as an "Orphaned account" and you will need to attach another "Parent account".

    Regards.

    Child's account history not showing up in Microsoft Family Safety

    Just to confirm, have you tried using a different browser and check if the issue persists? Since doing the steps provided on the link didn't help you resolve your concern, we would suggest you to recreate your son's account on the Alienware computer. To
    do so, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Click Family and other
      users
      .
    • Click Sign in with
      a local account instead
      (to convert her account to a local account).
    • After doing so, delete the local account. To delete a local account, kindly follow the steps below:
      • Go to Settings.
      • Click Accounts.
      • Click Family and other
        users
        .
      • Click the local account and then, click Remove.
      • A new window will open, click Delete account and data.
    • After deleting the local account, re-link the Microsoft account of your son as a user, then add it to your family.

    For more information on how to add a child account to your family, kindly click
    this link.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Family Account Not Removing.

    Hi Saksham,

    I am sorry to know that you are unable to remove the Family account.

    You need to remove it from the website and then from the computer if you do not want to see it on the log in screen.

    To remove the account refer the steps below.

    Sign in at
    account.microsoft.com/family
    . Remove or turn off the account.

    On a PC, refer the steps below.

    • Press Window key + X and select Control Panel.
    • Click on User accounts.
    • Click on Manage another account and then select the user account that you want to delete.
    • Click on “delete the account”.
    • Depending on whether you want to “Keep the files” or “Delete the files” choose the appropriate option.
    • You can delete the other accounts similarly.
    Note: Once deleted, the user accounts cannot be recovered. Make sure you back up any data if required.

    Restart the computer and check.


    • Try to open User Accounts and check how many accounts are there.

    • Open Run (type run in Search or press Windows Logo Key+X. Click on Run). Type netplwiz and Click OK.
    For reference:
