Windows 10: Child Account Get Greyed Out
Child Account Get Greyed Out
I added a child account to my Windows 10 Home machine.
When the child logs in, the following happens:
1. Go to Store.
2. Selects a free game rated "Everyone".
3. Selects the blue "Get" which changes to "Working"
4. There is a pop-up window which:
says "Subject to Microsoft Service Agreement".
There are two buttons at the bottom of it, "Cancel", which is white, and "Get", which is greyed out.
The only button active is "Cancel".
Try scanning your PC (quick scan) with windows defender.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I did the following instead.
I have another laptop, 2 weeks old, with Windows 10 Home on it.
On that one, I tried the same steps with the child account, and got the exact same results.
Does this mean you can click GET?
NO. It's exactly the same, same as the picture above.
You can select "Cancel", but not "Get".
Hmm try checking your time and language. this might help. go to START MENU. click settings. time and language then click on region and language. check if your region is correct. check your connection try changing some settings,OR go to store. click your photo picture near the search bar -downloads and updates and click CHECK FOR UPDATES. might help
Thanks for your help.
The region and time zone, and time are correct. I tried the "Check for updates" in the "Store" as you suggested. Nothing seems to change anything. I have no idea why that "Microsoft Service Agreement" pop-up screen appears. But, it does every time, for every attempted download, when logged in with the child account. And, "Get" is greyed out, so you can't select it.

How does a child account become a normal adult account? Is this something that happens automatically at a certain age? Or do I as head family account holder have to initiate something?
The reason I ask is because trying to use Edge on a child...

Hi. I'm getting a bit confused about how to set up child's laptop with me as an Administrator. I've read a few internet articles but they all seem to start by assuming that you have set up the computer in your own name first and are then adding a...
In Windows 7, I was able to basically block all programs. That is, all programs would be blocked unless the admin password was entered. There was also a way to allow certain programs without password.
I can't seem to figure out how to do a...
