    account access for apps

    Hi all, my son has a windows tablet which i activated using my existing windows live account. I have downloaded him some games to play but it seems he can only access these when he is logged in as me. Is there anyway that i can give him access to all of his games etc when logged in as himself. I do not want him to always log in as me, as he will have full access to all of my private stuff such as email and family safety etc. Thanks

    From the title I am assuming these are games downloaded from the Windows Store? I think he will have to download these himself when he is logged in in order to have them set up on his own account. I believe the store apps get associated with the user who downloaded rather than all users on the device.
