Watch in full screen mode

Full screen mode allows you to watch videos that take up your entire screen. 

Watch in full screen

  1. Go to the video you'd like to watch.
  2. At the bottom of the video player, click full screen .

When in full screen mode, you can scroll down to access comments and to see what videos are up next. Scroll back up to hide everything but the video. 

Exit full screen

At the bottom of the video player, click full screen exit . You can also exit full screen by pressing "Esc" on your keyboard.

If you have problems viewing videos, make sure you have the most up-to-date version of your browser. 

If full screen mode isn't working

If you're watching a YouTube video on another website and full screen mode isn't working for you, the website owner may have turned off that option.
