Netflix is not opening in my Win 10 Home.
It works fine in my Win 10 Pro.
Both are using IE11 as default browser.
I even tried switching to Edge as default, still no Netflix.
Yes, I have paid.

I did go to Internet Options > Advanced > Reset Internet.
Result still the same.

If you install and use the Netflix app, does it still have anything to do with your browser settings?
Mine just seems to open and run as an App.

Don't understand your question.
I installed Netflix from Windows Store quite a few months ago.

Just was wondering, if you were using the App, then what it had to do with your browser settings or which one was being used as default.
Have you checked the store to see if there is an update for the version you have installed. I think they are generally set to auto update but it might be worth checking.

Maybe an uninstall and re-install might do the trick.

OK.
I uninstalled Netflix which I got from Windows Store.

I went to the Netflix website and clicked the Member Login link , it remembered my account/password.
I clicked Sign in and a there it was. Netflix opened up.
I created a desktop shortcut for it and I am now back in business.

You said " if you were using the App.....".
Is that what you were alluding to ?

adding ..........
Is there a difference between the Netflix from the Store and Netflix from the web ?
Before when I went to the Store and clicked on Netflix, it said I owned it. Yet after installing it, it wouldn't open. Weird.

Only some minor interface differences as I recall. I use the App rather than my Browsers now so I need to go back and refresh my memory.

Very weird.

Browser left, App right
Not a whole lot of difference.
Honestly my Daughter and 7 year old Grand Daughter use it more than me.
