Windows 11 is the latest operating system available for PCs. It allows for seamless connection between PCs, Windows phones, and Xbox One gaming consoles. All Windows 11 parental controls are found in a free app called Microsoft Family. Here, you’ll also handle parental controls for your other Microsoft devices.

Microsoft Family Safety
How to add a child to your Microsoft Family account
Microsoft Family Safety allows parents to set screen time limits and more on all Microsoft-affiliated devices, including Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Surface, Windows 10 devices, Windows 7 devices, and Windows Vista devices. Parents can use the app to create search filters and block mature content. The app also has built-in location sharing so you can track family members. You can control everything from this app or use a browser — it's up to you!
Sign in with your personal Microsoft account and then select Add a Family Member.
Enter your child’s email address or phone number and select Send Invite.
Make sure your child accepts your invitation.
How to set app and game limits across your child’s devices
If your child is spending too much time on certain apps or games, you can set limits on that app or game to help them achieve a healthy balance. App and game limits are available on Windows 10 and Xbox One devices, along with Android devices with Microsoft Launcher installed. Once you set a limit, that limit will work across all of their devices. (For example, if you give them three hours on YouTube, they can spend a total of three hours on Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android.)
