    issues with windows 10 home family safety

    I'm trying to setup parental controls on Windows 10 so that the child account can only access the Internet and what ever programs I put on the desktop.
    I setup the accounts so that they are linked and the kids account shows up as a child on the computer. When I tested the standard settings the account was able to go in to Internet Explorer download chrome and install it. Even though it said you need the adult account to install there was a button was said something like install anyway. Once I got chrome installed I could go to all the blocked sites I had put in the parental controls. Also I was able to go in to the settings and just change my account from the required Microsoft account for the parental controls to a local account and be removed from the parental controls all together.
    The windows 8 and 7 parental controls seemed to work way better then the one that comes with Windows 10 can anyone help me make the child account more restricted? All I want them to be able to do is surf the Internet and only be allowed to pg sites or at least only sites i say are allowed and I don't want them to have access to setting or installing programs without the adult account.
    Thanks for any help!
