Turn On Parental
Control in Excel
If you have children who use Excel, you can
turn on the Parental Control feature to make
sure that they are not exposed to offensive
content in the Research task pane.
The Research task pane enables you to look up
data in reference works such as a dictionary, a
thesaurus, and a translator. However, the
Research task pane also enables lookups
through the Bing search engine and other
Internet-based reference sites.
These reference tools make the Research task
pane a useful feature, particularly for children
working on school assignments. However,
most of the reference tools have some offensive
content that is not suitable for young children.
To ensure that your children do not see this
content, you can turn on the Excel Parental
Control feature, which blocks such content.
