Youtube everyone loves – but not everyone is aware of the existence of “hot keys” that make watching videos much more convenient. The keys work with any video file and anywhere – both on YouTube and on any web page on the web. The best shortcuts are listed below.

YouTube keyboard shortcuts
K – Pause / Resume. Most people press Space. In principle, it is even more convenient than looking for the letter “K” on the keyboard. But there is also a serious disadvantage: sometimes after pressing this key a completely different shortcut is triggered, “lower the page down”. But if you press “K”, then nothing will happen except for stopping or reactivating the video.
M – Remove sound. It is not necessary to search for the familiar speaker icon with the mouse; the first letter of this word is enough to execute / cancel the Mute command.
F – Full screen mode. Refuse to double-click on the screen – to go to Full Screen mode, a single press of the F button is enough (again, the first letter in the Full Screen phrase).
J – Rewind the video 10 seconds back. Did you miss something? It is not at all necessary to search for a lost moment in the video with the cursor. Just find the J button on the keyboard and make your life a little easier.
Left arrow – Rewind the video 5 seconds back. Suitable for those for whom a trip into the past for 10 seconds is too much.
L – Fast forward the video 10 seconds.
Right arrow – Skip the video forward 5 seconds.
0 (zero) – View the entire video from the beginning.
Numbers from 1 to 9 – View one of nine video fragments. You may not have known – but Youtube divides each video into nine equal parts of the same length, regardless of how long the video is running. Switching between parts of a video is a great way to jump straight to the end, to the beginning, or to the middle of a video to find the information you need more quickly.
