Windows 7: Admin wants grant access to ALL documents, music, etc.

If you have your husband admin password, you can apply the Parental Controls while logging on to your own account. Just enter your husband's admin password when you are prompted.

Editing : if it won't let you, then you will have to log on to your husband's admin account. But I doubt that.


What is WLSF ?? Windows Live ..... ? Family Safety ?

As to the files that you can not see...
I told you in my first reply..... use admin account or admin password, Copy/To or Move/To all those files to Public Folders.

If you have your husband admin password, I have his password and I used it. Actually, I am now the Admin and changed his status to User. This is probably my biggester error. you can apply the Parental Controls while logging on to your own account. Just enter your husband's admin password when you are prompted Perhaps what I needed to do was to leave him as the Admin on his PC and just change his "status" within the windows 7 Family Safety Live program. Is this what I should have done?

1. Windows Live Family Safety.
I have given you links to WLFS portal in your new thread.

2. However, the documents on his desktop were not viewable to anyone except the Administrator
Use Copy/to or Move/to option and have those desktop files moved to Public Folders.

Why all the changing account type charade ? There is nothing wrong to have both accounts ( your husband's and yours ) set as admin accounts.

This came back with no answer(s). Did I do something wrong? I'm trying to use color so it would be less confusing.

In case you missed my " forthcoming " answer, here is a repeat .....

1. Windows Live Family Safety.
I have given you links to WLFS portal in your new thread.
logging onto familysafety.live.com

2. However, the documents on his desktop were not viewable to anyone except the Administrator
Use Copy/to or Move/to option and have those desktop files moved to Public Folders.

3. I have his password and I used it. Actually, I am now the Admin and changed his status to User. This is probably my biggester error.

1. Windows Live Family Safety.
I have given you links to WLFS portal in your new thread.
logging onto familysafety.live.com For some reason I had to restart my PC for the login to work. All is well on the logging in and changing status'.

2. However, the documents on his desktop were not viewable to anyone except the Administrator
Use Copy/to or Move/to option and have those desktop files moved to Public Folders. If I change the way he does "business" (leaving things on his desktop) I will be in trouble. He just want internet access blocked.

3. I have his password and I used it. Actually, I am now the Admin and changed his status to User. This is probably my biggester error.

Why all the changing account type charade ? There is nothing wrong to have both accounts ( your husband's and yours ) set as admin accounts. I thought I had to be an Administrator on his PC and his "status" to be "User" in order for it to work correctly - keep his PC of the no-no sites. If he can be the administrator on his PC and keep control of his files on his PC and I am the Admin on the WLFS and keep "trouble/porn" of his and the childrens' PC's, then that is the best solution.

Please tell me I got it right this time, please. I tried to hire someone today to do this so I could be more useful today, but he/Geek Squad salesman talked me out of it. Again, thank you for your patience. Pass or Failed?

>>>>If I change the way he does "business" (leaving things on his desktop) I will be in trouble. He just want internet access blocked

If you use " copy to " option, all you did is " copy " his files to a public folder.
He still has his files where they are.

>>>> I thought I had to be an Administrator on his PC and his "status" to be "User" in order for it to work correctly - keep his PC of the no-no sites.

You need to be an admin in order to apply the Family Safety restrictions. Yes.

As to the rest of your sentence, You lost me there completely. I have never been able to fully understand that part from the beginning. You will have to explain more about the relevancies among ...... trouble/porn - your husband - your kids.

By the way, why you switch attention to Windows Live Family Safety ?
What's wrong with the Windows 7 own built-in Parental Control I showed you ? I thought you were already in the process of setting it up.
Windows Live Family Safety and Windows Parental Control are 2 different animals.
