Hello everyone. I am Ms. Pickles -- a name I chose because, well, I'm in a pickle right now, and I could really use your help! (My font size is set to 18 because my eyesight isn't the greatest.)
Between this morning when I left for work, and this evening when I got home and fired up my laptop again, something weird has happened when I try to use the Search feature in YouTube.
I normally type my search request and then hit Enter on my keyboard. Tonight, nothing happened when I pressed Enter. So I used the mouse to click the Search button/Magnifying glass, and again, nothing happened.
I was redirected to a CAPTCHA because apparently Google picked up some "suspicious activity" coming from my network, and they had to make sure I wasn't a bot (probably because I was trying to click this, that, and the other things to figure out what I *could* click!).
I am able to click the menu bar on the far left top corner, able to access Settings from that menu, and I can use right-click > Open Link in New Tab -- which is a bit of a pain in the butt, and I'd rather figure out what's going on instead of "making do" with doing that from now until who-knows-when.
Any and all help's appreciated!
