    Windows 8 and XB1 family safety


    Having spent some time setting up my Windows 8 PC's with Microsoft Family Safety so that my kids only access appropriate content within permitted times I'm struggling to find out how to do the same on our XBOX ONE.

    Do kids have to have a Microsoft account to be able to join the XB1 family? In Windows 8 they do not.

    It would make sense to me that Microsoft Family Safety covered both products.

    :)

  2. Xbox App in Windows 8 Consumer Preview - New Account Made; Cannot Access Existing One

    You need to make a new account on Windows 8 completely by going to Control Panel > User Accounts & Family Safety > User Accounts

    You sadly can't just sign out.

  3. Changing Parent Account from Aunt's email to Mother's email for a childs account

    I actually just did this with my daughters account... go to this website: Account.Live.Com and sign in with the parent account currently tied to the child account.

    Once your signed in, On the left, click RELATED ACCOUNTS (It may try sending you a code to verify the account, choose the best option, retrieve the code and continue)

    Next, Click MANAGE PERMISSIONS

    Click VISIT THE FAMILY SAFETY WEBSITE

    Now at the very top in the blue, its going to say add parent. There you can add another email address (which they will need to confirm with a code)

    If you need any more help, refer to this website:
    windows.microsoft.com/.../set-up-family-safety


    I know this was an old post but it took me forever to find this so I figured Id share since I past your post in the process =)

    Real windows 10 os on Xbox(is it possible?)

    XB1 runs 3 OS's as it is. windows 8, Xbox OS, and a 3rd to manage the other 2. upgrading it to windows 10 would be easy as it overwrites the windows 8 portion (and probably updates the OS that handles the 2) without any issue.
