Customize channel layout

If you aren't able to follow these instructions, you are likely using the old version of YouTube. If you're using a newer browser, update to the current version of YouTube.

You can customize the layout of your channel so that viewers see what you want them to when they get to your page. If you don't customize the layout, all visitors will see your channel feed.

This is recommended for creators who upload videos regularly. You can add a channel trailer, suggest content for your subscribers, and organize all your videos and playlists into sections. Or, for example, you can always show your channel trailer to new visitors.

Before you can customize your layout, you need to turn this feature on:

Current desktop experience

  1. On a computer, sign in to your YouTube account.
  2. Click your avatar in the top right of your screen.
  3. Click My Channel
  4. Click the Edit Layout button.
  5. Under your channel's banner, click the settings icon 
  6. Toggle Customize the layout of your channel to on.
  7. Click Save.

Old desktop experience

  1. On a computer, sign in to your YouTube account.
  2. In the left menu, click My Channel
  3. Under your channel's banner, click the settings icon 
  4. Toggle Customize the layout of your channel to on.
  5. Click Save.

 

After you've enabled channel customization, follow the instructions to create a channel trailer for new visitors and create channel sections to customize the layout on your channel.
