Are you a Windows 10 converts responsible for young computer users? Be on your guard. Child-friendly Family Features from Windows 7 and 8 won’t be recognised or accepted in the new operating system.
Rather, children using Windows 10 PCs are seen as standard users; no dedicated child-user account exists.
That means any existing age-related website controls, app and game restrictions, PC time limits, plus your ability to view recent activity, won’t work on Windows 10.
Adults must now create a completely new set of family settings through a long-winded procedure in Windows 10 that requires the child’s participation.
Microsoft had explained the new controls, here, but the details will be lost on many millions following Microsoft’s advice to run Windows 10 on existing PCs.
