  1. Youtube Access


    Hi,

    I cannot access YouTube as every time I attempt to use it, a blank page comes up and states - 'Cannot securely connect to this page. This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner'. The only option available on screen is to return to the previous page. How do I fix this?


    Also I am currently using the newest Windows 10 and on a HP Pavilion laptop.

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Unable to access YouTube websites on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge on Windows 10

    Hi,

    As you are facing issues with accessing the YouTube on Windows browsers, do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    Provide us additional information to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the complete error message/ error code while trying to access the web pages?
    • Does this issue specific only with YouTube?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?

    Try the below workarounds to identify what is causing the issue:

    • Try to access YouTube in different browser and check if it is working fine. This will let us know if the issue is with the website/ the Microsoft browsers.
    • Also, try to access different website on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

    Try the below troubleshooting steps to access the website and check if it helps.

    Method 1: For Internet Explorer

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key, type
      troubleshooting
      and select it.
    • Click on View all in the left pane.
    • Click on Internet Explorer Performance
      and follow the onscreen instructions.

    Step 2: 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 3: 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.

    Method 2: For Microsoft Edge:

    I suggest you to check if the Adobe Flash player is enabled on Microsoft Edge.

    • Open Microsoft Edge, click on More actions
      (...) in the right-top corner of Microsoft Edge window.
    • Click on Settings, scroll down and click on
      Advanced settings
      .
    • Enable Use Adobe Flash Player
    • Check if the issue persists with accessing the YouTube websites.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status to access YouTube website on Microsoft browsers for further

    assistance.

    Thank you.

  3. I can't access Youtube in any browser

    Hi Rebecca,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    Do you face the issue only with Youtube?

    Is the computer connected to the Internet?

    If you are not able to access only Youtube.

    Try to ping the Youtube website and let us know the reply that you receive, to do so follow these steps:

    • Press Win + X key on the keyboard and select Command Prompt(admin).
    • Type ping www.google.com
    Get back to us with the details for further assistance.
