    Honestly, I feel like Windows 10 is not very configurable for a paying customer. Also, it is very difficult to set up accounts with limited access as there are too many programs installed. You need to streamline configurations...i.e. "Choose from the following setups for the user account: 1) bare bones installation, browser settings locked, no games installed, no way for user to circumvent safeguards in place."

  2. Block Google Chrome for Child

    I have 5 kids to setup content restrictions for. Though I love that Microsoft gives the power to have the safety features it does, the process is RIDICULOUS if you are doing it for more than 1 child!!!

    I attempted to setup my 3 younger kids to only have access to a couple of specific websites, but no other sites. During that process I removed Google Chrome from the blocked apps list. What I did not know was that I had to use Microsoft Edge (one of the
    worst browsers ever) to use the feature that only allows certain sites. So now Google Chrome is no longer a blocked app, but yet the site has no way to just add it back.

    I looked up how to block an app and was SHOCKED by the official info from Microsoft. See Below. Basically your kid has to use an app before you can add it to the blocked list. Doesn't that defy the purpose of having safety features for a child?

    Besides... I used my child's account and opened Chrome, yet it still DID NOT show up in their activity list in order to block it. NOW WHAT?

    FROM MICROSOFT

    Blocking specific apps is possible with the Microsoft Account's Family Safety Feature. To block a specific application on your child's account, it is a requirement that the app must be used by your child, so that it will appear in under the Recent Activity
    list. For your child's security, you can log in as the child and launch the app to satisfy this requirement.

    Follow these steps to successfully block specific applications:

    1. Visit the Microsoft Family website and then sign in your Microsoft Account.
    2. Click the account of the child that you want to block from using an app.
    3. Select Recent Activity.
    4. Click to ensure that Activity Reporting is turned on.
    5. Scroll down and look for Apps & Games.
    6. Choose the apps that you want to block on your child's account.
    7. Click Block to block usage of the app.

  3. My son can access blocked websites via https

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Are you facing this issue with a specific website?

    2. Which websites are you trying to block?

    I understand that your child is able to access blocked websites from the child account. I suggest you to just type the domain name proceeding with the .com without HTTPS (Example: Youtube.com) and check if that helps. Refer the following article for
    steps to
    block inappropriate website
    .

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to remove and re-add the child to the family account. Refer the following article for steps to

    remove members from your family group
    . The following link will provide steps to

    add members to your family group
    .

    Hope it helps.
