YouTube tips we bet you didn't know

Want a faster way to find the content you're seeking in a YouTube video? Or maybe you just need a shortcut to the mute option? You'll wish you knew these shortcuts all along.

It's easy to spend hours watching YouTube videos about, well, pretty much anything. Using your mouse to adjust a setting isn't exactly slow, but in some cases, the keyboard shortcuts are much faster. Here is a list of the best YouTube keyboard shortcuts you should start using right now:

These shortcuts work when you open a new video, without needing to click anything in the player.

  • J - Jump back 10 seconds.
  • K - Toggles play/pause.
  • L - Jump forward 10 seconds.
  • M - Mutes the audio.

The following shortcuts may only work once you've clicked somewhere on the player (play, pause, volume, etc).

  • Left/right arrows - Rewind or fast-forward 5 seconds.
  • Up/down arrows - Volume control.
  • Numerals 1 through 9 - Skip to 10%-90%, respectively.
  • Home - Jump to start of video.
  • End - Jump to end of video.
  • F - Enter fullscreen mode.
  • Esc - Exit fullscreen mode.
