So how do you set up Microsoft Window parental controls on your child’s mobile?
- First, make sure that your child has a standard Windows 7 user account. Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts and Family Safety, click Set up Parental Controls for any user. If you’re prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Click the user account that you want to set Parental Controls for. If you haven’t set one up yet, click Create a new user account. Under Parental Controls, click On, enforce current settings. If Windows Live Family Safety is installed on your computer, you will see a sign-in page and there is no need to continue with Steps 2-4 of this tutorial.
