- Q. What do various UI changes mean?
Center the Title : Centers the title of the playing video. Tested and works on Firefox 104.0
and above. It will work for you if YouTube is serving you the old interface. If you're already seeing the newly minted UI/layout, this text will only turn blue. Please feel free to turn it off in the settings.
Center the Description: Center aligns the text of the description on videos.
Hide Profile Pictures: As the name says, it turns off display pictures of commenters.
Highlight Selected Tab: On the home page, it highlights the current selected tab on the left hand
side (subscriptions, explore, etc). The little topic bubbles at the top of the page too change color on hover. Just another visual clue to aid your browsing.
#All these toggles are completely optional and you can turn them off at any time.
- Q. What do search filters hide?
Hide Related results and Horizontal Card List Suggestions - remove automatically-generated
suggestions like "People also search for".
Hide Playlists removes all playlists from appearing in your search results. Be mindful while
looking only for playlists with YouTube's default search filters - if you tick this option, there might be a blank page altogether.
Hide YouTube Mixes prunes those auto-generated mixes from the search results.
Hide Channel Listing removes any channels from clouding your search results.
Hide Shorts Panel makes sure you don't see shorts carousel in the search page. Please note that
this doesn't remove individual shorts, but the entire horizontal pane that sometimes pops up!
- Bonus Feature?
If you tick the Redirect Shorts to Legacy Video Page option, all shorts you click
will get redirected to the "normal" video page version.
This feature is for those who dislike the tiktok-like
interface on desktop but still want to check out a 10 second clip! No need for extra scripts or extensions
That's it, if you see anything breaking in this context, send me a message through
