Setup Timed Parental Controls in Windows 7
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set up timed parental controls on a Windows 7 computer.
Open the Control Panel by clicking on the Start button, then clicking on "Control Panel".
Once the Control Panel window is open, click on "User Accounts and Family Safety".
Click on the Parental Controls subsection once.
Once it's loaded, parental controls can be set for all of the accounts except for the Administrator account. For the sake of the tutorial, a user named "kids" was created.
Click the account to open the options for it.
Click on the radio button to the left of "On, enforce current settings".
Three options will show up to create time limits, game limits and block specific programs.
To set a time limit, click "Time limits" once.
Set the time and days where the user is allowed or blocked.
For example, if you don't want the computer to be used during the working days, you would block everything except for Saturday and Sunday. There are two ways to do this.
Either click on the boxes separately or click and drag the mouse to select multiple times.
Now, the user is blocked all week except for Saturday and Sunday.
To give some open hours to the user, click individual boxes to unblock them.
Once the times are set, click "OK".
If you're happy with all of the settings, click "OK" again.
Close the Control Panel window.
That concludes the tutorial on how to set up timed parental controls on your Windows 7 computer.
