    It’s easy to share your Windows 10 PC with family members. Add family members using Add a family member from your PC's Settings, and they’ll be able to use that PC as well. And you're always in control. You can allow or block them from using a PC at any time.

    Add a child to your family to help them stay safer online. Adults in the family can view reports of kids’ online activity, limit how long and when they use their devices, and help make sure they don't see inappropriate websites, apps, or games. Manage family settings online at account.microsoft.com/family, and changes will be applied to any Windows 10 device the child signs in to. You can also add adults to your family who will also be able to apply settings to children in the family.

    The Screen time family settings allows you to set limits as to when during the day your child can be on their Windows devices and the maximum amount of time they can spend on each device per day.
    • Set multiple screen time limits per day for your kids' devices. You can also view the allowed time in a calendar.
    • When your child runs out of screen time on a device, enter your password and give them more screen time on the same device. This works even when you don't have internet access.

    I'm pretty sure Windows 8 used to give the kids a warning when their time was about to run out. Windows 10 doesn't seem do that and just locks the laptop right in the middle of whatever they were working on. Anyone know if there's a way to get some sort of warning to show up so they know that they should save their work because they're about to get locked out?

    Mine get a warning, but it does not try to get them to log out. Thus we end up with multiple disconnected sessions running on the PC and it then runs very slowly (with all the background resource usage from disconnected users).
    It's not ideal, but I'm going to make a logon powershell script to run that forces disconnected users to log off. Some may lose unsaved work or context.
