    Bothersome inputs.

    Hello. In W-10, I was given a way to block this bothersome video that springs up in the right-low corner of my screen. It worked. Can anybody show me how to do likewise in W-8.1 ? It involved clicking on a small icon on the site address bar. I can not find it in W-8.1.

    Thanks a mega, in advance. JP

    It would help if you were to tell us what program this is popping up in?

    Now running Windows 10 64 Bit OS.

    Looks like a browser page so there isn't much you can do about what content sites supply. Clicking on the cross will probably get rid of it until next time.

    cheers, Paul

    Most browsers should have a setting to disable playing of video or animations, which may help.

    There's a Chrome/Opera extension called AutoplayStopper which I use, seems to help.

    OK, let me refine my poorly defined description. This is in Edge browser, I am running W-10 Insiders 18290. If I click on the small padlock at the left end of the site address as shown :

    I will then get the next option to block it all as in :

    Lock-a.jpg

    Where in Win 8.1 can I achieve the same result ?

    After snooping around a little, I think that I found it, here is what I located :

    Thanks to all who responded. Jean.

    David, greets.

    You typed at me thus : >> are you telling us that you use Edge in Windows 8.1? <<

    I have been tempted but it is in beta only so far. But read my lips :

    >> In W-10, I was given a way to block this bothersome video that springs up in the right-low corner of my screen.<<

    I was asking how to do this in W-81. This was in my first post here. Pay attention or go to the corner. LOL. Jean.
