Setting up parental controls on Windows Control Panel will help you to control exactly what your children can do on their computers and devices. You can use the built-in Windows 10 parental controls to restrict online activities, monitor usage, and block unwanted programs and apps.
1. Open the Start menu, then type “parental controls” in the search box.
2. Click on Set up parental controls for any user. This will open the User Accounts window.
3. Select the name of the user account that needs parental controls.
4. In the Parental Controls section, click On, enforce current settings.
5. Under Web filtering, select the level of control you want: Basic, Moderate, or Strict. This will determine which websites your children can access.
6. Under Games, you can set the rating level. Choose a rating that is appropriate for your children’s age level. You can also choose to block certain games completely.
7. Under App and Web Restrictions, you can decide how much time your children can spend on the computer and what types of apps they can access.
8. Under Screen Time, you can set a daily limit on how much time your children can spend on the computer.
9. Finally, click Apply at the bottom of the window to save the changes and apply the parental controls.
Once you have set up the parental controls, you can monitor your child’s activities by checking the Activity Reports. To access this, go to the same User Accounts window and select Activity Reports. This will show you which websites your child has been visiting, the kinds of apps your child has been using, and how much time your child spends online.
You can also manage Windows parental controls remotely using the Microsoft Family Safety website. To do this, first create a family group on the website, then add your child’s account as a member of the family group. Once your child has been added to the family group, you can manage and monitor all of your child’s activities on the website.
Setting up parental controls on Windows Control Panel is an easy way to ensure that your children are safe while they are online. With the right settings, you can give your children the freedom to explore the internet while keeping them safe from potential dangers.
