    Should a teen at boarding school be given their own Microsoft Windows account?


    We've got a 15 year old going off to boarding school, and I'm wondering about the relative wisdom of initially putting the whole Microsoft Windows account under their name/email (since I won't be around to proctor/troubleshoot issues with the laptop most of the year) vs setting it up in my name and adding them as a family member?

    :)

  3. Can't add a school account?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to try the below given methods and check if it works:

    Method 1:

    This issue may arise due to some file corruption, I suggest you to try running DISM tool and check if it works. To do so, refer the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Method 2:

    I suggest you to try to create a new user account and check if you still face this issue in new user account. To create it perform the steps mentioned below.

    • Press Windows key + X key and select
      Control Panel.
    • Click on User accounts and Family Safety.
    • Click on User Account and then click on Manage Accounts.
    • Now click on Add a new user and follow the instructions.
    • Sign out from the current User account and log-in using new User account and check if issue persist.
    Hope this information helps. Please post back with the results, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
