  1. Why is my Microsoft Account Balance available to my kids?


    I have money in my Microsoft Account to purchase things on the XBox for myself. I just got a new laptop for my freshman who is homeschooling, and upon adding his MS account to my Family, I noticed that my MS Account Balance is available for him to use. I got suspicious and checked my other kids, and my balance is available for them as well. I have not put any money in their accounts, but somehow they get access to mine, with no way to stop them from using it. This is not acceptable. How do I rectify this?

    :)

  2. To disable kid account to access Microsoft store.

    I use microsoft account for parental control.

    The Microsoft store in adult account (admin) has been removed in Powershell

    Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore* | Remove-AppxPackage

    But same command does not work in kid account. Anyone can suggest how to remove window store to avoid kids download and install APP? Thanks

    Why can't I use my own Microsoft Account Balance as the payment method to add funds to the other Accounts within my family?

    I'd like to add some funds to my kids account.

    Family all setup.

    Add funds link... no problem.

    Change Payment method... ok.

    On that page, my Microsoft Account is listed as one of my payment methods and it has a healthy balance.

    However, that payment method is greyed out (not a selectable option).

    Why? If I've got funds, why can't I transfer them to my kids to spend in the store on their games and their devices?
