    Why does an app downloaded and installed in a child account only show up in the admin account?


    I downloaded and installed a game for my kids while logged in under their account. However, it only shows up under my admin account. I can launch the game from their side by trying to re-run the installer and providing admin authorization, which then launches the game without actually running the install, but obviously I would rather that it is just there by default for them to use.

    :)

    How to change admin account to child account


    Hi

    I recently upgraded a HP computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 pro using the
    Windows update/free Upgrade.

    How can I change my childs admin account to a child account? The account
    is registered With a Microsoft account and i have added my Microsoft account
    as a second admin on the computer.

    Thanks

    Child Account Get Greyed Out

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I did the following instead.

    I have another laptop, 2 weeks old, with Windows 10 Home on it.

    On that one, I tried the same steps with the child account, and got the exact same results.
