Youtube magnifying glass seems to be working fine.
As per below image (I use opera browser)

I type my area of interest and press the magnifying glass to action the search.

Is this the issue you are facing?

It could be that your current Internet Browser is playing up that the magnifying glass feature on Youtube is broken.

Internet Browsers can face issues where some things will not work due to the followings (there could be more)

  • Application source file is damaged via virus
  • Windows OS have not been updated
  • Internet Browser application is not updated
  • The browser is no longer supported / updated by its company
  • Built up cache

For example, Microsoft's old Internet Explorer; Youtube have announced that their website will not work on Internet Explorer.

Some web browser issues can be fixed by doing simple troubleshooting like....

  • Uninstall and re-install
  • Clear saved caches, history, cookies (for specific reasons like user authentication issues)
  • Update the version

It is recommended to have another Internet Browser as a backup or secondary, because there are some websites that will not work with certain browsers or outdated versions. Web developers have ties with Internet Browser companies; they release regular updates so that web developers website and its features (Youtube magnifying glass) will work without causing problems on user/s PC.

Recommended browsers

  • Google Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Microsoft Edge
