Re: How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10

I have figured this out - see below - but thought I should clarify things for those kind enough to stimulate my brain with suggestions. 

The reason for the banners appearing is an EU ruling that every website has to seek your approval for its use of cookies. There is some text, a link to view their cookie policy and a button or link which dismisses the banner and adds a cookie so it doesn't come up again.

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