    Play webpage


    The Play webpages is already selected but that has not restored the sound in the Chrome browser; however I can now play YouTube videos because an Internet Explorer icon now appears in the Volume mixer. I don't know how that came about in my mails account under Google I am able to play YouTube videos. As long as I use Internet Explorer I can select from favorites and play but not in Chrome. Thanks for bearing with me. I would appreciate your comments on the changed situation.

    Turn On or Off Play Sounds in Webpages in Internet Explorer

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Turn On or Off Play Sounds in Webpages in Internet Explorer wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

  6. Internet Explorer 11 will not click on an icon in a webpage

    Hi Sarah,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    As you are unable to access submit button on web browsers, please do let us know the following:

    • Is this issue confined to specific web site on specific web browser?
    • Have you tried on different web browser?
    • Were you able to access different websites in Internet Explorer with no issues?
    • What exactly happens when you click on submit button?
    • Were you able to see any error code/ error notification?


    Step 1: If the issue is only on Internet Explorer and to specific website, I suggest you to view the website in compatibility view to check if the issue is confined to compatibility.

    Steps to view the website in compatibility view:

    • Open Internet Explorer
      and open the website.
    • Click on Gear/ Settings icon at the right-top corner of the window.
    • Click on Compatibility View Settings, click on Add
      to add the website and click on Close.
    • Reopen the website and check if the issue persists.


    Step 2: If the issue still persists, I suggest you to access the website in
    InPrivate mode and check.

    InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing what sites you visited and what you looked at on the web. You can start InPrivate
    Browsing from the New Tab page or the Safety button.



    Steps to open the browser in InPrivate mode:

    Open Internet Explorer, press Shift+Ctrl+P
    to open the browser in InPrivate mode and try to access the website.





    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue, we will be happy to help you further.
