how do i stop youtube vids auto loading

I love browsing and watching doco's on youtube but every time i go to a page the main video automatically starts loading up whether i want to watch it or not and i cant seem to stop it. I'm not very computer savi so im not sure if this is normal or is there a stop button that i'm missing ? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

On a macbook put two fingers on the scroll pad and click. The pop up window, of course, has all the options.

If your using a mouse, double right click.
A kid told me that. ......... I feel old.

That's probably a Single Right Click.

Right click once and the options appear, Right click again and they go away

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
