[SOLVED] The Pause/Resume button in the Windows 10's lock screen doesn't work when playing YT video

Honored Contributor

UPDATE: Solved in Version (Official build) canary (64-bit)


Version (Official build) canary (64-bit)

in Windows 10, go to YouTube, play a video in the new Microsoft Edge Canary, then press Windows button + L, to lock the user account. there will be a small area at the bottom right corner of the lock screen showing the YouTube video being played in the background and gives you the option to pause/resume or next/previous, the usual controls. in this Edge version the pause/resume button doesn't work.


doing the same thing in Chrome 76 and now chrome 77 (both canary), works fine.

@HotCakeXGood find on this.  I'm seeing this as well on my machine.  I will let engineers know about this.


Thank you!


P.S tried just now on (Version (Official build) canary (64-bit)), still the same result.

@HotCakeX, try it again with the latest version ( of canary.  


Yes, checked and it's solved, thanks for the quick action 

From the lock screen? well if there is a YouTube video being played on Edge or Chrome, it will show up on there (Just like Android OS) and there is currently no option to disable it..
