YouTube Has A New Layout, Here’s How To Get Rid Of

By Benedict Townsend

YouTube has a whole new look - and also a way to turn it off. Here's a quick and easy guide on how to keep living in the past

YouTube has a new, rather slick new layout. Being something that is new, it is naturally despised by people across the internet, who will hate it until it is inevitably changed again, at which point they will become nostalgic for it and demand it return, because they always loved it. Such is the way of the internet.

To get rid of this new, more minimalist layout, just open the menu in the top right of the screen and look down to the bottom of it. There there is an option that says 'Restore old YouTube'. This will do the trick.

No word yet on whether this will be a permanent feature, but for now you can use it to relive the glory (?) days of YouTube's old layout. What do you make of YouTube's new layout? Do you hate it as much as YouTubers seem to? Let us know in the comments below, or on our Facebook page.

Also we have a new book! Look how pretty it is!
