We have finally got around to creating a quick video demo of our latest release of Ultimate Settings Panel.

The main new feature on this release is one that we have been asked for the most. That is for the theme and colour scheme you choose to be saved. This has now been added and whatever you change the theme to, will automatically be saved as soon as you change it.

There are millions of helpful YouTube videos out there and these days you can even view full series of TV programs, films and music videos, which is great, but what if you wanted to download a YouTube video? Well, the simple answer is that you can’t as YouTube does not provide a way of downloading from their site.

However, there is an excellent program called 5KPlayer which allows you to very easily and quickly download YouTube videos to your own computer.

Download

You can download the 5KPlayer from the button below:

Download 5KPlayer

You you have downloaded and install the program, go ahead and open it up. You will be greeted with a start menu like this:

YouTube – How to clear your search and viewing history

YouTube Animated Logo

We recently had a request from someone wanting to know how to clear both their search and viewing history from YouTube.

For whatever reason this can be handy to do this especially if you use YouTube at work – you don’t want your colleagues seeing the dodgy stuff you view on a weekend!!

Instructions

We have created a quick video guide below but also the full written guide with screenshots below that:

Go to https://www.youtube.com and this should take you to your YouTube homepage. Ensure that you login to your YouTube account.

Then, on the left hand side towards the top, you should see a little three line icon:

1

Click this to bring up your YouTube menu. In this menu, you should see a “History” option. Go ahead and click this:

2

You will then see your “Watch History” and this is the default open tab, underneath there you will see a “Clear all watch history” button:

3

To clear your watch history, just click the button and watch it disappear!

If you want to go ahead and clear your search history, then click on the “Search History” tab and click the “Clear all search history” button:

4

This will now have cleared all your search history on YouTube.
