YouTube: Picture in Picture

We live in an amazing time. There are so many incredible “How-To” videos available on YouTube that we can learn how to do almost anything. Sometimes watching a video is tough when you are trying to actually do what it teaches you to do at the same time. If only we could pop that video out and watch it on top of our screen that we are working on. Wait, we CAN! Using Picture in Picture we have that ability! Check out the steps below to see how to do this. 

Enable Picture in Picture:

  1. Open the YouTube video you want to watch.

  2. Right-click on the video (a total of 2 times).

  1. Click on “Picture in Picture”.

  1. You can now drag this video anywhere on your screen and even resize it. Anything you are viewing will be behind the video. This includes Chrome Tabs and even the actual desktop screen.

  2. You can pause and play the video with the ”Play” or “Pause”  button in the video.

  1. When you are done you can click the “Expand” icon and return the video to the YouTube Tab.
