  1. Screen time limit working when parental controls are not enabled.


    Greetings

    I have a Dell laptop with Windows 10 installed. I recently changed the hard drive to an SSD, but ever since then, Windows is locking me out at random times due to the 'parental screen time control'. My account is not part of any family group and there are no screen time settings enabled. How do I stop it locking me out? Please help before I lose my sanity . . .

    :)

  3. Parental Control - Adding more time doesn't work

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. I will assist you with this.

    I suggest you to delete the corrupted files yourself and see if it helps to resolve the issue, please follow these steps:

    1) Make sure your children are signed out of any monitored accounts.

    2) Sign in with an administrator account and find the folder that contains the corrupted files.

    There are two ways to do this. The easiest way is to enter the complete file path:


    • On the Start screen, type C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls and press Enter.

    • If you’d rather open each folder individually, follow these steps:

    a. Go to This PC

    b. Open C:, open the
    ProgramData folder, open the Microsoft folder, open the
    Windows folder, and open the Parental Controls folder.

    3) Delete all contents of the Parental Controls folder.

    This will delete any corrupt files. Your settings will be downloaded again from familysafety.microsoft.com the next time you sign in.

    Hope it helps. Reply with the result and I'll be happy to help you further. Thank you
