  1. Screen limits not working right. Help!


    Windows 10 Pro PC

    I have two kids with screen limits, and two different Microsoft accounts, and this behavior happens:

    When child A tries to log in during the morning, it uses child B's allowed times. Child A is supposed to have to log in later.

    When child A tries uses the computer, MOST of the time goes into child B's activity. Child A only ends up only showing 10-20 min of activity per day usually. Today, it was 1 min. Child A was definitely on more than 1 min.

    Tonight, child A was able to use the computer an hour longer than supposed to be allowed before it child A out.

    Activity updates usually 6 hrs too late.


    Don't send me the two articles here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ft-account-fix-screen-time-limits-not-working and here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026772/microsoft-account-fix-family-activity-reporting . I've already done everything.

    I've checked the computer time, it's correct.

    I have all updates.

    I've tried removing their accounts from family, one-by-one, and re-adding.

    I've tried changing their limits between for all devices and for Windows 10 only multiple times.

    I've tried re-adding their times.


    I looked around Reddit and other places and LOTS of people are having trouble with screen time. The latest update is supposed to fix issues, so I don't know if people realize it's still broken, at least for some people.

    :)

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
