If youâ€™re working from home, chances are youâ€™ve let your kids sit down in front of the Xbox or a Windows PC…then you lose track of time, and they end up playing for hours unattended. Itâ€™s easy to set screen time limits on the Xbox and on Windows 10, allowing parents to set precise limits on screen time per day and define the hours during which itâ€™s okay to play.
Setupâ€™s a bit of a hassle, though, especially if the kids arenâ€™t already set up with a Microsoft account. Weâ€™re here to walk you through it.
