Re: How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10



If I'm understanding correctly, this message is by the web page. It is part of the web page itself and can be found, read and interact with within the virtual buffer. Where in the virtual buffer it will be, depends on the web page in question. Usually it is either on the top or on the bottom of the page. There the user can find a control (button, link, clickable item, or something similar), witch will allow the user to dismiss the message. But it is not necessary to dismiss it - it can safely be ignored - it is just an informative message - nothing else. This message will most certainly appear in a web page if the "Do not track" feature of the browser in use is enabled. At least those are my observations.

Best wishes,

But the question is why is this being seen?  Also, it isn't clear whether this is a part of a web page or something displayed by the browser. F6 will only be useful if the item is displayed as certain kinds of structures by the browser and not by the web page itself.  We don't know.  We need more information.  If possible, a link to one of the pages where this occurs should be given.  List members need to see if they see the item when going to the page.  This may be something that a browser settings change will correct.  Or it may not.  Whatever it is, we need more information.

Hi Brian:
Try pressing f6 once or twice, I think that is the command to switch
from one pane to another.
