The Comprehensive Guide to YouTube Player Keyboard Shortcuts

1. Skipping Parts of a video

Almost every video you see starts with some random or irrelevant scene or introduction, so it’s only natural to hurry the video along by clicking on the time slider bar. Here’s how to do it without mouseclicks or the touchpad.

You can skip part of a video by pressing the numbers on your keyboard: skip videos at 10%, with button number 1, or 9 for 90%. The numbers do not refer to the minutes in the video, so if you want to start halfway, press 5 for 50%.


Note that this will not work when the video is already playing, although putting the video on pause rectifies this. Pressing button 0 on your keyboard will bring you back to minute 0:00 of the video.

2. Tab to Select Tool Options

The Tab key is useful if you don’t want to navigate with the mouse. In YouTube, the Tab key lets the user highlight tool options such as those listed below. Just press Enter or Space to execute.

  1. Watch Later
  2. Seek Bar – Press any number between 1 to 9 to skip parts of the video.
  3. Play or Pause
  4. Volume Control – Press up / down arrow keys to control.
  5. Change Quality – Press Enter or Space to execute, then press Tab key again to select quality.
  6. Large Player
  7. Small Player
