    Minecraft for Windows 10 and Microsoft Family Safety


    I am using Microsoft Family Safety to monitor my child's account. We just purchased Minecraft for Windows 10 for him but when he opens the app it opens in Beta mode. Of course, since he is a minor we cannot use Xbox Insider Hub. How do we get Minecraft to open normally?

    :)

  2. Blocking Minecraft through Family Safety

    How do I block and unblock Minecraft through Family Safety? I am running Windows 10. When I ran Windows 8.1 before MS "upgraded" Family Safety just before the launch of Windows 10, I could go into the "Apps" page of Family Safety and easily block and unblock
    Minecraft. Ever since MS "upgraded" Family Safety just before (and presumably in preparation for) the release of Windows 10, Minecraft does not show up as an App that can be blocked.

    Based on another post, I've blocked Java Runtime, but that does not block Minecraft on my machines.

    This is a critical issue, at least for my family. Please help.
