  1. Microsoft failings in reporting their program failures due to not reporting program activity


    Right from Windows 3.1, one of Microsofts most serious failings is not to display their program progress or the break points in their utilities as to what their programs are are currently doing. Their philosophy would be that they are protecting the user from the technicalities of computing but I would argue that they are depriving the opportunity of users to provide detailed feedback as to where their program/ utility has got stuck/ going around in a loop when failures occur. Instead of a circle of dots going around seemingly forever, it would be better to

  2. Microsoft signals end of Paint program

    Microsoft has confirmed that it will continue to offer its graphics program Paint.

    In a recent update, it had listed Paint as a feature that would be either removed or no longer developed.

    Paint, renowned for its simplicity, has been part of the Windows operating system since its launch in 1985.

    Microsoft suggested it would not remain on Windows 10 by default but did say it would be available for free on the Windows Store.

  3. Family activity report

    Hi Javier,

    There are ways on how to manage activity reporting for your child. To configure your account settings, here are the steps:

    • Go to the account.microsoft.com/family site at Microsoft on any PC
    • Then sign-in
    • Open Settings
    • Tap on the Accounts icon
    • Click on Family and other users on the left side
    • Chose Manage family settings online
    • Check recent activity link for the child's account

    Turn On and Manage Activity Reporting for Child

    • Click on Recent activity on the left side, and turn on Activity reporting.
    • Check or uncheck to Email weekly reports to me for what you want.
    • Under Web browsing, Apps and games etc., you can view your child's recent activity for each one, tap on Change settings
    • Then set allowed times to manage them, and to block any apps and games.

    To Turn Off Activity Reporting for your Child, just tap on Recent activity on the left side, and turn off Activity reporting on the right side.

    Get back to us if the steps won't work.

  4. Microsoft failings in reporting their program failures due to not reporting program activity

    Child Activity Report

    Hello Tareq,

    Let's determine the cause of the issue. To get started, I'd like to get the following information:

    • Is this your first time to encounter this issue? If so, did you make any changes to your account or to your computer prior to this?
    • Which email address did you use when you've set up the Family Safety?

    To make sure, I suggest that your follow these steps and see if it helps:

    • Go to account.microsoft.com/family
      and sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Find your child's name and select Activity.
    • If Activity reporting is turned Off, use the switch to turn it
      On.

    Note: If you don't want to get weekly activity reports in your email, but still want to see your child's online activity, switch Email me weekly reports from On to Off.

    We're looking forward to your response.
