    Sorry for my over-the-reply. Just as feedback maybe;


    == About Family Rules some thoughts ==


    ---> I generally do not have any dreams to use strong restricted limits for device usage (time limits). And if I will use such features - most likely it will be more as 'symbolic', than something else;

    Latest weeks I tried to use some of 'not common' settings and just some potential points  which I want to suggest/ask or just as feedback;


     {-> Does it possible to add (additionally to FIVE minutes; FIFTEEN minutes, THIRTY minutes and ONE Hour) extend-options like "TWO Hours" and "Postpone for today"?



    Maybe as 'specific' options from 'device lockpage' -extend dialog (add more time) only; And not always (as extend dialog from 'soon will be time limits end'); Or maybe it can be OK for any meanings;


    There my feelings about next view: if there already time limits and we have lockpage for device; BUT we have to extend time usage (or allowing 'continue' to use system) -> it can be time to time useful extend two hours (than one hour and than if required else one extend for one hour); Two hours (as temporary requirement) can be enough (and if not - quite good options than to allow one hour or two hours; or less than hour);  If it will be more (as potential extend-option) - maybe not reasonable; But "two hours' looks can be good;


    And what about 'Postpone/Cancel for today' - can be useful - if we want to cancel any device-time-limits for certain day (for today); It can be much better - than we have to disable feature; Or always allowing (if there reached limits); On current time - if we have time-limits - but do not want them 'be valid for today' - there missing any brief steps (if timelimits reached); Except as allowing extend-time or disabling feature; But such option can be as good exclusion-ability; 

    Next spoiler not valid already.... how I can to understand.

    Most likely it was trouble based on previous "local stuck for extending-time" (when it not added/extend time and timelimits goes broken); Becase it normally work with current TP (and maybe previously - but based on points taht extend from dialog not worked with previous TP; and stuck after allowing time was more often - it was with such view);



     {-> Does it possible to save 'extend-option-choose action' after restart system?

    There next meanings and situation: if we get device lockpage and extend time  for 'one hour' else (as example); We able use system this hour. But if we do restart after 'two minutes' (or after any other time; or crash happened for fshoster; or other potential related steps) - so with loading system (or restarting services) we get lockpage and we have to add/extend time else one time.


    Maybe this situation as designed; But for potential situation it can be quite 'not useful'; But maybe this is not common situations...


    == About CURRENT TP some thoughts ==


    Probably not critical three points (about Help; about 'bypass' lockpage; about Antivirus-tab name with larger font-size):



    Quite good that there fresh HELP (Help file out of date (CTS-99317)) - but looks like that there can be still outdated localized help-files (but all OK with default help file); But most likely this as designed (temporary; while default Help up-to-dating); As it can be with changes for Family Rules tab/view;


    Also - I still not sure - does it just my system or fresh lockpage of Family Rules with changes;

    But practically each of them (but mainly with start/load system as restart or turn on system/machine) comes with visible taskbar. And pretty good 'option' rightclick for FS Protection logo (blockpage/lockpage process) under taskbar and choose "Close window" - which normally allow to use system even there limits work;


    There under release-notes also have string about 'Tools tab with potential wrong size/view' (as fixed point); With fresh (current) TP I feel that three tabs comes with one view/size (most likely): Family Rules, Tools, My FS Protection;

    But 'Antivirus'-tab name start be with larger size of font(most likely as it was with Tools-tab previously); I just not sure... if such situation 'designed' with meanings that this tab as MAIN TAB (and it should be with larger size/font); Or it kind of randomly start be larger.

     Sorry for my reply/feedback.
