Windows 10: Sudden YouTube Full-Screen Issues with both IE11 and Edge Browsers

    Sudden YouTube Full-Screen Issues with both IE11 and Edge Browsers

    I belong to a forum where we sometimes post a music video, and I never had problems until a couple of days ago seeing a video that was downloaded to the forum in full-screen mode.

    It happens in IE11 and Edge browsers, and just started. A couple of other people are having the same problems. The error message actually blocks the title of the video, so you can't read who it is.

    Any idea how to go in these browsers and change the permissions to view full screen for YouTube videos even if they're on another site? On YouTube, the full screen works fine.

    I haven't changed any settings at all in the last couple of days. Any advice appreciated.

    I also get the same full view error with videos here. Not a big deal, can go to youtube to see full screen if I really want to....but wondering why this is suddenly a problem in the last couple of days.

    I haven't had a problem with Maximized but don't use Full-screen very much except when needing more in a screenshot.
