So back in Windows 10, if you had a screentime, you could see a little icon in the bottom right corner with all the other icons, and you could hover over it to see when your screentime ends. Now that I updated to Windows 11, I don't see it anymore. And I didn't find anything on the Family app either. What should I do?Windows 10 cinema s Family icon - Cinema | Free icons

this is what the icon looked like ^User's image

    Hello Dank Definite

    It seems that many people have this issue. One user in this discussion provided a solution:

    Open Task Scheduler

    On the right sidebar go to Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > Shell

    Inside of shell, there should be a task called “FamitySafetyMonitor” and “FamilySafetyRefresh”

    Right click on FamilySafetyMonitor and click run.

    Right click on FamilySafetyRefresh and click run.

    Double check the properties on each so that they run when the user logs in. I’m not sure why, but for me, running each one manually seemed to jumpstart the process and it now works on log on.

    Hope this also works for you!

    Regards,

    Karlie
