How to Fix and Turn Off “Do You Want to View YouTube.com in Full Screen?” Nagging Message on Windows 8 and 7
So, this bug shows up while watching a YouTube video on all recent Windows versions namely, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Basically, every time you start watching a video on Internet Explorer, the nagging message appears on the bottom of your Internet Explorer screen and reads: “You Want to View YouTube.com in Full Screen? Press ESC to Exit.“. Next to this message there are two buttons: “Allow Once” and “Options for this site” that lets you remember the choice you made. The issue is that even though you ask Internet Explorer to remember the option, whenever you flush the cache and the Internet options, your choice will be deleted so you will get the same message over and over again. On the Internet I have found a little trick that will fix and turn off the message on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 adn WIndows 7 operating systems using Internet Explorer 11.
