  1. I need help with my Windows "family account"


    So I just set up my first computer today, and put in my email to use, and now I'm in trying to download stuff, but it insists I need permission from a "Parent account".

    My email has never been linked to a family account and I can't figure out a way to switch the email to try to stop this. Is there any way I can like factory reset my PC and reinstall windows so I can use a different email¿

    As per the above information, I suggest that you refer to the steps below and check if you are bale to remove the unknown account.

    • Sign in at account.microsoft.com/family with your Microsoft account on any PC or device
    • Click/tap on Remove under Adults in
      Your family
    • Click/tap on the adult account you want to remove, and click/tap on Remove
    • You (adult) and all other adults in family will now get an email confirming the adult has been removed from the family

  4. I need help with my Windows "family account"

    need help setting my family up i have done everything but still not working

    Hi Bailey,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    As I understand that you are trying to set up family and it is not working. We will help you to resolve the issue.

    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things:

    1. What happens exactly after setting your family?

    2. Are you getting any error message?

    How do I set up family on Windows 10?

    • To help keep kids safer, adults and kids can connect their Microsoft accounts in the same family.
    • To add adults or kids to your family, go to
      account.microsoft.com/family,
      select Sign in, then
      Add. If you don’t have a Microsoft account, select
      Create an account,
      then follow the instructions.
    • Once the family has been set up, adults can block inappropriate websites, apps and games, limit overall screen time, see reports of kids’ activity, and add money to kids’ accounts.

    I suggest you to follow the steps from the below article “Set up family features” and check if it helps.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
