Windows 10: New disfunctional URL and interface for youtube, w/ Win. 10 & Chrome Solved

    New disfunctional URL and interface for youtube, w/ Win. 10 & Chrome

    I've been using Chrome with Windows 10 for many months, always update promptly, etc., no problems. Suddenly when i go to youtube -- using Your browser is deprecated. Please upgrade.
    - YouTube
    -- i get redirected to Your browser is deprecated. Please upgrade.
    - YouTube
    , and the interface looks like what you see below. And none of the links work. Neither refreshing or rebooting helps. I'm not usually logged into google but the problem persists even when logged in. I use an Acer Aspire S7-392 laptop. Ideas?

    Hey, i'm not sure what's going on with this post! Up there i see -- twice -- "your browser is deprecated. Please upgrade - YouTube." That is NOT what posted! The first link is supposed to read -- i'll throw in a couple of unnecessary spaces so it doesn't convert again -- https: // www. youtube. com. The second should say https: // I'm not sure why these two URLs keep getting replaced with that phrase! I just checked and Chrome is up to date.

    Welcome to the TenForums @joninbc

    First when you post a URL the system checks the site and if it finds a title for link it puts it into posting rather than URL. The interesting ones are when it says "Accessed Denied" which can be concerning.

    Can't tell what extensions you have installed in Chrome, for a test disable all.

    Have you tried clearing all stored browser information, cache, history, cookies. (Found in advance settings)

    If this doesn't work at bottom of advance there is a reset.

    Thanks Ken. The only extension i have is adblock. I tried disabling adblock for the site but it doesn't help. Also deleted caches, cookies, etc. Still no go. Weird. It just started suddenly a couple of days ago when nothing new had been updated or installed.

    It looks like you've opened the mobile version of you tube. Is that what you intended?

    No! I'm probably one of the few people on earth consciously without a smartphone. I didn't want mobile. Is there a way to get back to a PC version?

    Hey, thanks!!!!! I just scrolled down to the bottom of the youtube page and sure enough -- i was in mobile. And there was a link to click for desktop, which i clicked and now all is well. Thanks so much bra10n!
