  2. Click on your profile icon on the top right of your screen, and click on Your Channel in the drop-down menu.
  3. You will then be taken to a page where all of your videos are stored.
  4. Click on the blue YouTube Studio button near the top of the page.
  5. Click on the Videos option, which is shaped like a square with a play button inside.
  6. Hover your mouse over the video that you want to delete, which will make three dots appear.
  7. Click on this icon and click Delete to remove the video.
  8. To complete the process, click the confirmation box and then press the Delete Forever option.

  3. Select the Your Videos option, which can sometimes appears as My Videos.
  4. You should now be able to see a list of your uploaded videos.
  5. There will be a menu icon which will appear as three dots to the right-hand side of each uploaded video.
  6. Tap on the three dots next to the video you want to delete.
  7. Tap the ‘Delete’ option from the menu that appears.
  8. You will be prompted to tap ‘Delete’ again to confirm and finish the process.
