    My child's content and app limits are not working


    Hi,


    In Windows 10 I have been using app and content limits for my child's own profile on one computer for the last two months and they've been working great ! until this last week.


    I've tried all of the fixes noted here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026901/microsoft-account-fix-screen-time-limits-not-working


    But none of these helped. I've tested it myself and even after playing with all of the settings on my profile and his removing time completely, adding time, requesting time, etc., nothing has worked and his profile allows him to jump onto Minecraft for however long he wants.


    That said, the other content limits are working limited website access, etc., so everything else seems to be fine - it's just with limiting time on Minecraft as an app.


    Would welcome any guidance - thanks!

    :)

  3. Child Time limits not working

    My child's account is not blocking after time limits or based on time of day, as it is entered into the schedule

    It does log his time, which I can see when I look at his activity tab. His account is also not blocking apps that it is supposed to block. For instance, his activity log shows how many hours he was on Chrome, but then on the "Content Restrictions" tab, it
    shows that Chrome is supposed to be blocked.

    - I have followed the steps on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ft-account-fix-screen-time-limits-not-working

    - Windows is up to date

    - His account is logged in. And it has been verified.

    - I have searched many other threads, forums, etc.
