(Texas A&M University) Since the early 1930s, electron microscopy has provided unprecedented access to the alien world of the extraordinarily small, revealing intricate details that are otherwise impossible to discern with conventional light microscopy. But to achieve high resolution over a large specimen area, the energy of the electron beams needs to be cranked up, which is costly and detrimental to the specimen under observation.
You can block a website on a Windows 10 computer using the Microsoft Edge browser.
To block sites through Microsoft Edge, head to Microsoft's Family Safety site and log in with your adult Microsoft account.
Adult Microsoft accounts can't block websites, so you'll need to create a child's account.
Using the Family Safety app, you can block websites on Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android devices, all at once.
Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.
Windows 10 has built-in parental controls that you can use to block undesirable websites through the Microsoft Edge web browser. This can help keep your kids safe when they're using your computer unsupervised.
But in order to block websites, your child will need to have their own Windows user account and sign in on their own — they can't simply use your account, because you can't block websites on adult accounts.
Here's how to set up a Windows account for your kids, and use it to block websites on Windows 10. Note that you can set this up using any internet browser, but once you do, the sites will only be blocked in Microsoft Edge — any other browser will be unaffected.
Check out the products mentioned in this article:
Windows 10 (From $139.99 at Best Buy)
Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart)
Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $699.99 at Walmart)
Xbox One S (from $389.95 at Amazon)
How to block websites on Windows 10
Set up a Windows account for kids
If your kid can already log into your Windows 10 with their own account, skip down to the next section. If not, you'll need to start by adding a child account to your PC, so that Windows knows when they're logged in.
1. Create an outlook.com email address for your child. After the account has been created and your child knows how to log in to check his or her email, add your child's account to your Windows 10 PC. Start by clicking the Start button and choosing the gear-shaped Settings icon.
2. Click "Accounts" and then click "Family & other users."
3. Click "Add a family member" and follow the directions to "add a member" and enter your child's email address.
4. After you've added your child's account, click it on the Family & other users page and click "Can log in."
Block websites through Microsoft's website
1. In a web browser, go to family.microsoft.com and sign in with your adult Microsoft account.
2. Find your child's account on the "Your family" page. Under their name, click "More options" and then click "Content restrictions."
3. In the section labeled "Web browsing," turn on "Block inappropriate websites" by sliding the switch to the right. You should now see controls for blocking and allowing specific websites.
4. To block a website, click "Add a website you want to block" and then type or paste in the URL. You should see it appear in a list under the text box.
If you prefer, you can choose to block all sites except for a few that you specifically approve. To do that, click "Only allow these websites" and enter the sites you want to allow, one at a time, in the text box labeled "Add a website you want to allow."
How to block websites across Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android devices
Microsoft offers a way to block undesirable websites no matter where your child is — as long as they're using a Windows 10, Xbox One, or an Android phone.
Microsoft's Family Safety app is an Android app you can use to filter the content your kids can access on their devices.
1. To get started, install Family Safety on your Android phone and log in with your adult Microsoft account.
2. On the home screen, tap your child's name and then tap "Content filters."
3. Tap "Web and search."
4. To block a site, type or paste a URL in the "Add a website" field in the "Never allowed" section. It'll appear in the list in the "Never allowed" section.
5. Tap "Save" at the top right of the screen.
You can also choose to block all sites except for a few that you specifically approve. To do that, turn on "Only let them use allowed websites" by swiping the button to the right and then and entering the sites you want to allow, one at a time, in the "Add a website" field.
Now, these websites will be blocked or allowed on every device that's logged into your child's Microsoft account.

A number of Reddit accounts were compromised Friday afternoon, which led to a number of subreddits being overtaken by pro-Trump signage.
A Reddit spokesperson told Business Insider in an email that "an investigation is underway related to a series of vandalized communities. It appears the source of the attacks were compromised moderator accounts. We are working to lock down those accounts and restore impacted communities."
A Reddit post lists the subreddits that are affected, which include r/Avengers and r/bannedfromclubpenguin, which both display pro-Trump content at the time of writing. However, not all of the subreddits have the Trump banners displayed on their pages. For example, r/49ers and r/nfl are among the subreddits listed to have been compromised, but the headers on their pages do not display the pro-Trump icons.
A post r/Black Mirror shows that the subreddit was at one point compromised and showing the pro-Trump icon, though its header now displays the TV show title. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why you don't see brilliantly blue fireworks

TikTok has threatened to sue the Trump administration over Thursday's executive order that bans US citizens and companies from doing business with its Chinese parent company ByteDance.
TikTok responded to the order on Friday, saying it was issued "without any due process."
The executive order prohibits US individuals and companies from making "any transactions" with TikTok's parent company ByteDance. Another order on Thursday targets Tencent-owned WeChat.

TikTok has threatened to sue the Trump administration over the president's executive order banning US companies and individuals from doing business with its parent company ByteDance.
Trump signed the executive order Thursday, claiming the Chinese firm poses a national security risk.
"We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process," TikTok said in a statement published Friday.
"For nearly a year, we have sought to engage with the US government in good faith to provide a constructive solution to the concerns that have been expressed. What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses," it added.
TikTok suggested that the executive order was illegal and that it may challenge the diktat in court.
The company said: "We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly – if not by the Administration, then by the US courts."
This week reports emerged that the Trump administration was forcing TikTok to sell off its US business or face a ban. Microsoft has publicly announced its pursuing acquisition talks for TikTok's US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand business.
TikTok accused the Trump administration of flouting the law by ignoring due process. "This Executive Order risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth," it says.
Here's TikTok's response to the order:
"TikTok is a community full of creativity and passion, a home that brings joy to families and meaningful careers to creators. And we are building this platform for the long term. TikTok will be here for many years to come.
"We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process. For nearly a year, we have sought to engage with the US government in good faith to provide a constructive solution to the concerns that have been expressed. What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses.
"We made clear our intentions to work with the appropriate officials to devise a solution to benefit our users, creators, partners, employees, and the broader community in the United States. There has been, and continues to be, no due process or adherence to the law. The text of the decision makes it plain that there has been a reliance on unnamed "reports" with no citations, fears that the app "may be" used for misinformation campaigns with no substantiation of such fears, and concerns about the collection of data that is industry standard for thousands of mobile apps around the world. We have made clear that TikTok has never shared user data with the Chinese government, nor censored content at its request. In fact, we make our moderation guidelines and algorithm source code available in our Transparency Center, which is a level of accountability no peer company has committed to. We even expressed our willingness to pursue a full sale of the US business to an American company.
"This Executive Order risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth. And it sets a dangerous precedent for the concept of free expression and open markets. We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly – if not by the Administration, then by the US courts.
"We want the 100 million Americans who love our platform because it is your home for expression, entertainment, and connection to know: TikTok has never, and will never, waver in our commitment to you. We prioritize your safety, security, and the trust of our community – always. As TikTok users, creators, partners, and family, you have the right to express your opinions to your elected representatives, including the White House. You have the right to be heard."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: July 15 is Tax Day — here's what it's like to do your own taxes for the very first time

Amazon is hosting its big ad conference, called AdCon 2020, on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, according to the event's website.
This is the second time Amazon is hosting AdCon.
The move shows Amazon is likely planning to make AdCon an annual event as its ad business has grown in size and influence in recent years.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Amazon's big ad conference that debuted last year is coming back for the second time.
AdCon 2020, which is the name of this year's confab, will be held for two days on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, according to the official website of the event.
On the website, Amazon said this year's conference will be held virtually because of COVID-19. The invite-only event will feature top Amazon ad executives and "thousands of advertisers and partners," according to the website.
"Join thousands of advertisers and partners to hear inspiring keynotes, attend educational breakout sessions, and engage with experts," the website said. "Gain exclusive advertiser insights, trends analysis, product deep dives, and networking opportunities to help you grow your business."
The move shows Amazon is likely planning to make AdCon an annual event as its advertising business has grown big enough to warrant its own conference. Amazon's cloud unit, Amazon Web Services, started re:Invent in 2012 and now attracts over 40,000 attendees every year.
Amazon's representative didn't respond to a request for comment.
Amazon ad business, which makes money by charging sellers and brands to promote their products on its site, recorded $4.2 billion in sales in its most recent quarter, up 41% from the year-ago period. According to eMarketer, Amazon is expected to own 9.5% of the US digital market this year, behind only Google and Facebook, which control a combined 53% of the market.
Last year's inaugural event was small in scale, with only a few hundred brands and agencies in attendance. It was invite-only as well, but didn't have a website of its own. The event included case studies from brands like the mattress company Tuft & Needle, and a keynote speech by Paul Kotas, SVP of Amazon Advertising.
The website for this year's event comes very little details. The deadline for signing up is Sept. 28, but the agenda has not been uploaded. Still, it encourages people to register as "something new" will be shared, according to the FAQ page.
"Whether you are new to Amazon Advertising or an experienced user, you will learn something new at AdCon," it said.SEE ALSO: This chart shows Amazon's one-day shipping has significantly rebounded, but many sellers still face long delays getting their own shipments to warehouses
