Windows 10: Family Safety on when it shouldn't be

    Family Safety on when it shouldn't be


    Ever since I updated to windows 10 I've been having troubles with the Family Safety options. Things like youtube videos and other things like that are blocked, and locked that way. I am the administrator account and the adult (as well as the only one on this computer). I also frequently get messages in my notifications box about how my device activity is reported to my family. Since I am the only one on the computer/family, I am confused. Is there anyway to turn family safety off?

    If you use MS account/IE/Edge, you need to disable FamilySafety online as well.

    Additionally, you can input this into CMD as admin, enter and restart:

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Shell\FamilySafetyMonitor" /Disable
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Shell\FamilySafetyRefresh" /Disable

    I use mostly Google Chrome, but I looked for the options in Microsoft Edge and couldn't find it. Also, when I commands in the cmd it said that it was already disabled. I restarted anyway and nothing was changed, as I expected.
