YouTube Pro Tips

Here are two things everyone watching YouTube videos (on a desktop) should know:

  1. The number keys 1-9 on your keyboard will skip 10-90% into the video. “2” is a good one for skipping the intro, “hey, guys, welcome to the channel” stuff that everyone feels they need to pad their videos with.
  2. The right- and left-arrow keys will skip forward or back 5 seconds per press, and you can spam them pretty quickly to move 15-30 seconds.
