    If you have an Users local account an a computer, how do I include it in the family member?
    In order to fully manage (installation, removing, updating, ...) the user apps, it is necessary that the user is a family member or not?

    I'm afraid it is not possible to add a family member to a local account.

    "For those who still on a local account type, the only issue is that you can't add multiple accounts to your computer if you're not using a Microsoft Account. This limitation should not be a big deal, but it's something you need to keep in mind."

    That was take from How to manage Microsoft Accounts and User Accounts in Windows 10. You should read it all the way through. I thought is was very informative.
