Specs: Window 8, 4G
My laptop had already set up to turn on Family Safety in Window 8.1. So I was used to set up time limits and curfew for the standard account (child's account) in Control Panel

I turned off Family Safety. When I wanted to turn it on again, Family Safety in Control Panel led me to Change PC setting to select the account to edit. But When I clicked on "Edit" and It poped up my child account but No thing to edit
But there was an option to manage Safety Family on line. I enter this website to control Family safety (time limit and curfew) It works

However, I'd like to set up at local laptop as before

How to turn on Safety Family at Laptop not online?

Any suggest would be appreciate.

Now in Parental account, the option "Manage Family Safety setting on line" was disappeared from "Manage Other Account" in "Change PC setting"

On family safety website showed that
"Settings for Cathy Nguyen are not active

Cathy Nguyen is not current associated with any accounts

To add window for Cathy Nguyen "run Family Safety" on PC Cathy Nguyen uses"

But I could not run Family Safety

Notice that Family Safety run well from Online setting first time after I had turn off Family Safety at Control Pannel

I was confused Please help Thanks,

✔ Best Answer
Thank you for posting your concern here at the Microsoft Community forum. Let me assist you with your concern on setting up Family Safety on Windows 8.1 Computer

When you turn on Family Safety on Windows 8.1, it will take you to PC settings and on child account you need to click edit and change the account from Standard to Child and click Ok. Check the screenshot.

After that go to Control Panel – Family Safety and click on “More Information arrow” and then click “Remove it from the Family Safety website” check the screenshot.
