4. Controlling Windows Store and game play

Family Safety enables you to control access to the Windows Store and to downloading and/or playing games on a computer.

To control access to the Windows Store and to the type of apps that can be downloaded, return to the User Settings page And click the Windows Store And Game Restrictions link. Click the <username> Can Only Use Games And Windows Store Apps I Allow option. Figure 10 shows the Game And Windows Store Restrictions page after selecting that option.

To allow or block games and Windows apps that can be downloaded by the selected user, use the following steps:

1. Click Set Game And Windows Store Ratings. The Rating Level page appears, as shown in Figure 11.

2. To allow games that have no ratings, click Allow Games With No Rating.
3. Conversely, to prevent the user from playing games that have no ESRB rating, choose Block Games With No Rating.
4. To specify the ratings that OK for the user, click one or more of the ratings (such as Early Childhood, Everyone, and so on) that you want to allow the user to access. As you select a rating, a blue box appears around the rating name and description. To unselect a rating, click it again. Notice that as you go down the list of ratings and select a rating, all ratings above it are selected as well. That is, you cannot select a rating lower on the list, such as Teen, without also automatically selecting a rating higher on the list, such as Early Childhood.
5. Click the back button when you finish selecting the games and apps ratings you want to allow.

To control the child’s game play, return to the User Settings page and click Games. Doing so opens a page for controlling if you child is allowed to play games on this computer. If you don’t want the child to use the computer for game play at all, choose No. Otherwise, choose Yes.


Note
ESRB stands for Entertainment Software Rating Board, an independent third party that rates games for age appropriateness and specific content. The ratings are similar to movie ratings, but specific to computer games. To find out more information about the ESRB rating system, click on the ESRB logo on the Rating Level page. Windows connects to the Entertainment Software Rating Board web site, which provides information about ESRB.

If you want to allow or block games that are installed on your computer, click the Allow Or Block Specific Games link on the Game And Windows Store Restrictions page. The Allow Or Block Games page appears. Then you can scroll down the page and block more games based on content type. To block games based on content, select the type of content you want to block. When you get to the bottom of the list and have blocked all the content that you feel is inappropriate, click the back button.
