People watch YouTube videos for hours upon hours everyday. And if you're a regular YouTube watcher on you laptop, there's a handy way to speed things up a little… or slow them down.

Yep, there's a speed button on the bottom right hand corner of the video, which allows you to choose whether you want to make your YouTube videos go a little bit faster or slower. 

The former is quite handy if you just want to speed through videos and get to the good parts without skipping over the entire video. And the latter is great if you need to look out for something and don't want to miss it.

On the settings button at the bottom right-hand corner of the player, you will see speed as its third option. Clicking it will give you the option to slow it down to 0.25x or 0.5x or increase the speed to 1.25x, 1.5x and 2x.

Slowing it down is also quite handy if you need to take a screen grab!
