5. Blocking and allowing Apps

With Family Safety, you can control the apps and programs that a user can run on the computer. Clicking App Restrictions on the User Settings page displays the App Restrictions page. By default, all users have access to run all apps. To limit the apps that a user can run, click the <username> Can Only Use The Apps I Allow link. When you do this, as shown in Figure 12, a message appears that indicates that the selected user can run only the apps and programs needed by Windows. Also, after a few moments, a list of apps and programs appear at the bottom of the page, which shows all installed apps and programs.

You use the list of apps to specify which apps are allowed by the selected user. Select the apps that deem OK for the user to use. After you select the first app, notice that the warning called This Person Can Only Run Apps Needed By Windows disappears.

If you do not see an app or program that you know is installed on your computer, click the Browse button next to Add An App To This List. You then can navigate to the app or program file (programs usually are .exe files), select it, and click Open. That app or program will be listed in the Check The Apps That Can Be Used list.


Tip
If you want to allow a user to use all apps and programs but a few, consider clicking the Check All button. This selects all the apps and programs in the Check The Apps That Can Be Used list. Then find the individual apps or programs you want to restrict access to and click its checkbox to deselect it. Continue this until your list appears the way you want it to.

When you finish with the App Restrictions page, click the back button to return to the User Settings page.
