You Tube videos don't run.
« on: August 11, 2017, 02:59:50 AM »
Windows 10/Edge.

Ran Version 4 of Windows repair and the no play problem appeared.
Restored the system and ran the latest 4.02 version with same results.

In the first case I used the 'Go to Safe Mode' button in the programme.
'Network' wasn't activated.

In the second case (F8 doesn't work now it seems) I used the method which gives an F4 or F5 option...F5 'With networking'.

In all cases the programme ran to it's conclusion (including the Y/N implications elsewhere) but reported 'TIPS can't be opened with the built in admin account'
I only have one account on the PC 'Local Admin Account'

In all cases the network was not activated.

Searched and tried various remedies but none worked!

Do hope that's understandable as it is fairly complicated.......No problems in IE 11

I used the repair in the first place to stop occasional crashes in Edge and an occasional mouse delayed click problem...two mice different USB outlets.

I assume I open powershell and copy the line and then press enter as per a 'Command Prompt'?

In Win 10 as in Win 8/8.1 in Safe Mode with Networking, wireless is disabled so you would need to wire up.

However you can still enable wireless by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL on the desktop then click on the WiFi icon in the system tray and click on your SSID and then on Connect.

Left click away from that and then click on Cancel where you'll see an active WiFi icon.

I don't know if you get the Enable F8 in the free version of the program but you do in the Pro, but you can restore the old F keys by opening a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter bcdedit

Under Windows Boot Loader look to see what it gives for your Identifier - it will either be {current} or {default} and is entered with those curly brackets.

Then enter -

bcdedit /set {your Identifier} bootmenupolicy legacy

shutdown /s /t 00

and then try tapping F8 as you switch on.

This also restores F2 for Setup (BIOS) but you can use that normally now by pressing and holding that key as you switch on, but it will also restore F12 for the one off Boot order change.

If you want to change the bootmenuplicy back then redo the cmd using standard instead of legacy.

That TIPS error message is standard when you boot into Safe Mode - just click on OK.

Edge isn't quite up to the job yet without tweaks - this article may help with that - http://windowsreport.com/microsoft-edge-youtube-error-windows-10/

Copied from the Powershell screen:-

The AT command has been deprecated. Please use schtasks.exe instead.

Invalid command.

The AT command schedules commands and programs to run on a computer at

I tried everything both of you suggested unfortunately with no positive result.
You Tube would not run in all instances plus my original glitches weren't resolved either.
Finally I did a system restore prior to installing Windows Repair and after updating Windows etc You Tube is OK.

 I believe I am due a Windows clean install but having never done one before (since the beginning of Windows!) I will bide my time.

Thank you both :smiley:

You could try a repair install instead of going the whole hog, but I think Edge and YTs seem to be an on going saga.

I just use IE 11 in my Win 10 and don't really bother with YTs unless someone has posted them on a forum.

On another forum ironically though, I had to use Edge to view a vid link that wouldn't play in IE 11 - although I think it played in Firefox.
