    ms family account screen time limits not working


    Hi


    Despite trying all the suggestions I can find online to fix it screen time limits have not been working for months. The limit is set correctly but Windows appears to ignore it. Family activity reporting shows that the activity duration is greater than the limit set.


    Thanks

    Mik

    :)
