  1. Time Limit For A Group of Apps in Family


    In Microsoft Family I need a feature where I can set a time limit for a group of apps together. This important for video game limits for example. If I can only limit time per app then I either have to make the limits on game apps very short which isn’t fair or give larger limits that allow the child to have way more gaming time in aggregate than I want to allow. It looks like UserVoice for Family is defunct. Is there a channel through which to request this feature? Thanks

    :)

  4. Time Limit For A Group of Apps in Family

    microsoft family time limit, without any family accounts?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Basically removing the account from the family group, the account will still exist, but it won't have the benefits or restrictions it had within the family group.



    In this scenario I suggest you to check if the child account still exists under family group. If yes, you can go ahead and remove the members from the family group. Refer the article
    Remove members from your family group
    for the steps. Please make sure that you are followed and kindly back to us with the results.



    From more information, I would suggest you to check the article from
    Daniel Strommen[MSFT] dated March 31, 2017

    and refer the section Common issues with time limits.



    Meanwhile I would like to inform you that it’s required have an administrator privileges on the computer to make any changes with the user account. I suggest you to try signing in with the administrator password and make the necessary changes.
