  1. Time Allowance Tracking


    Hello, I've seen on many parental controls, that tells the user of the account how much of their time they have used and how much they have left. How do I get that to work with the Windows parental controls? I have a Windows 10 Pro. I want the kids that are under parental controls to be able to know this information. They brought this up to me and I figured they were right when saying it wasn't fair that the computer just shuts off just like that without giving them a heads up. We all always lose track of time, so I would like to fix that problem.


    Thank you.

    :)

  3. How to track a stolen device

    Hi Juland,

    We understand your concern and we will provide the information required to help resolve your issue.

    To begin with, I would like to inform that the feature "Find My Device" has some limitations. This is only a device-tracking solution, and it won’t allow you to remotely wipe or lock your PC. You also won’t be able to play an alarm or snap a photo of the
    person using your device with the webcam. It will only show you your device’s location.

    As you have stated that the "Find my Device" option is disabled, lets see if we can activate the same via your Microsoft Account. To do so follow the steps below

    Step 1: Activate the feature.

    1. You’ll log into that Microsoft account from a web browser. The account should be the same as the one used to access the user account.

    2. You’ll see a message saying “Find my device is off” if you haven’t enabled it yet. Click the “Change” button to enable this feature. Activate the “Save my device’s location periodically” option when prompted and your Windows 10 PC will regularly and automatically
    send its location to Microsoft. This will allow you to locate your PC even if it isn’t powered-up and online when you go to track it, as you can view the last known location.

    Step 2: Track your Device.

    • When you want to track your lost device, open a web browser and go to
      account.microsoft.com/devices
      .
    • Sign in with the same Microsoft account you used on that Windows 10 PC you want to track.
    • You’ll see a list of devices registered to your Microsoft account. Scroll through the list and look for the device you want to track. You’ll see “Last seen at [time] in [City]” to the right of the device.
    • Click the “Find my device” link and you’ll be able to track the device on a map. If the device is powered on and connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi, a wired Ethernet cable, or a cellular data connection, its location will update regularly.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    TRACK LISTS in E51

    Hi,



    I had created several TRACK LISTS by adding MP3 files one by one and used them for some time. (The MP3 files were stored on a memory card.)



    (Media --> Music Player --> Music Library --> Track Lists.)



    These personal Track Lists have suddenly disappeared. (I DIDN’T delete them.)

    All I see now as Track Lists is “Most played tracks”, “Recent Tracks” and “Recent Additions”; the Track Lists that I made are not shown



    Four Questions:



    1. Is there a way to restore the lost Track Lists?



    2. How can one create TRACK LISTS and prevent their “disappearance”?



    3. Is it possible to COPY PLAYLISTS from Windows Media Player (WMP) to TRACK LISTS in E51?

    (The SYNC tool in WMP copies files but does not copy PLAYLISTS.)



    4. Is there a shorter method to make a TRACK LIST than by playing MP3 files and adding them one by one to a particular TRACK LIST?

    (E.g., I would like to make a TRACK LIST from all the files in a particular File Directory.(



    Thank you for your help.
