  1. Is Family Safety gone in Windows 10?


    I am changing my kids over from a Windows 8 computer to a Windows 10 computer. It won't allow me to add my kids with a local account rather than a Microsoft account and also control what they have access to. I do not want them to have email or a Microsoft account. I can add them as an other user, not part of the family, but then it appears that I cannot control anything that they do on the computer. Is it possible to add them without a Microsoft account and still use the safety features or should I just return this computer and try to find one with Windows 8 on it?

    :)

    • Which web browser are you using?

    Is Family Safety gone in Windows 10?

    Windows 10 Family Safety is blocking my browser!!!

    Can you confirm if you are out of the Family Safety feature on your parent's account on this
    link? If you've confirmed that you're no longer on the list of monitored child accounts, we suggest deleting the Family Safety folder. Here are the steps:

    • Press Windows key + E on your keyboard.
    • On the address bar, type this address C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls and press
      Enter.
    • Delete all contents of the Parental Controls folder.
    • Restart and see if the issue is resolved.

    Let us know how it went for you.
