[Use Simple Command Lines To Restrict Account Usage]
Parental controls is a very important part of any operating system. If you have a child and want to restrict their usage, then it’s smart to know the different tools that help you do it. Here you can learn a few simple command lines which will easily let you set the usage limit for your child’s account.
Open Command Prompt from the Admin account.
The command for setting the limitation is – net user <username> /time:<day>,<time>
Replace <username> with the username of the account that your child uses.
Replace <day> with the days or days, that you want your child be able to have access to his/her account.
You can add full name of days or initials like M,T,W,Th,F,Sa,Su.
Replace <time> with the time frame in which your child will be able to access his/her account.
Here, you can set the time limit in 12-hour format or 24-hour format. If you use the 24-hour format, make sure to fill in only full hours (14:00 or 17:00). Half an hour (14:30 or 17:30) won’t be acceptable.
The user account won’t be accessible at any time outside of this limit.
You can set a different time for different days by separating the different days and time entries with a semicolon.
If you don’t want to set a time limit, then just write all in front of time. If you leave it blank, it would mean complete lockdown.
Once done, you can type in this command – net user <username> – to see the complete details of the account.
With these simple steps, you can easily control when your children use their accounts.
