  1. Parent Account Restriction


    I'm having an issue purchasing an application on my PC due to it requiring parent consent. My parent does not have access to his account any longer and I have no way to remove the parent account from mine. Can someone help me out with this?

    :)

  2. removing microsoft account

    There are no restrictions listed at https://accounts.microsoft.comYet when i try and acces chrome for instance it wil send a request to the "parent account" of which none exist and then give an error when there is no parent account to request from. I have
    done as was suggested by another microsoft employee and added myself to their family and removed restrictions and removed myself from the family again but as i said in the question, i still have the restrictions in place and microsoft has not given any real
    help with my issue short of what was previously listed.

  3. Parental Controls in Windows 10 - Local Account

    I've read several posts on this topic but may have missed one that explains how to

    • use an existing local account
    • or make that existing local account the add-on child's account
    • or establish a new account and transfer all favorites to the new account.
    I have a special needs child that will totally freak if he loses all his favorites in making the transition that Windows 10 requires for parental controls ... and I don't want to spend the time to add hundreds of favorites to a new account.

    Like many others, I have no reason to

    • set up restrictions on other devices
    • establish a Microsoft account for my son
    • establish an email account that won't be used and will then be deleted if it's not used
    I don't mind going back to Windows 7 - where parental controls worked perfectly without the need to jump through hoops - now that I'm using Windows 10, I'd prefer to stick with it BUT only if I can get working parental controls.

    Has anyone discovered the solution?
