How to turn off parental controls on Xbox 360

One of my friends has an Xbox 360.  She also has a teenage son, and wants to lift the download restrictions on games.

Since the new Xbox 360 dashboard had changed dramatically, this option has been rather hard to find.  Here’s where to go to change the parental control settings on your Xbox 360:

System Settings > Family Settings > Console Controls > Restricted Content, Game ratings, Video Ratings.


If your parents have already set this, then you’ll need their password to make any changes.

Happy downloading!
