  1. Windows 10 Family Restrictions still present even though removed from family


    Hello. I recently logged into my m=Microsoft account on a new PC. My account was previously linked to a family and I was labeled as a child, but I have just removed myself from the family. However, I'm still unable to download certain pieces of software because of the previous family restrictions. I have checked my account, and I confirmed I have been removed from the family. Does anyone know how to fix this?


    EDIT: Trying to run a piece of software that was previously restricted prompts me to ask an adult for permission by email. When I click the "ask by email" option, it just returns an error.

    :)

    Microsoft family restrictions

    Hi,

    You actually need your parent to turn off any restrictions on your account. I'm afraid you need to get yourself back to your family temporarily. These are the instructions for an adult account.

    • Go to account.microsoft.com/family and sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • To remove a child, find their name, then select Content restrictions. Turn off any settings you may have enabled. Then go back to your family’s page, find the child’s name again, and select More options > Remove
      from family.
    • If you want to remove a child because they’re now an adult, or if an adult account has been misclassified as a child account, they’ll need to verify
      their account
      .

    I personally think you should be good without doing the third step, but I can't give you a guarantee.

    Hope it does the trick. In case of any issues, I'm happy to help you more when needed. If it worked, please mark the answer as helpful.
