no longer want to see in the recommended section on the YouTube home screen. Click the three dots, click not interested. It says, “Video removed.” You can undo it or you can tell us why. If I refresh the page you can see that the
video is now gone. If I remove two videos from the same channel. That channel will no longer be recommended
to me. What if I see a section of videos from the
whole channel? Click the X which says not interested YouTube
says, “Got it we’ll tune your recommendations.” Now, I no longer see those recommended videos. Another way to remove the recommended videos
is to clear your search and watch history. To do this click the history tab when you’re
signed in to youtube.com. Make sure you check the icon next to watch

means that future searches will not appear in your search history and will not be used
to provide improved recommendations. Remember pausing the setting doesn’t delete
any previous activity, but you can view edit and delete your private YouTube search history
data anytime.” Click pause. Now it says, “This list has no videos.” Let’s go back to youtube.com. Now, you can see that the recommended section
on my home screen has been removed if you still got some recommend videos and recommended
channels on the home screen click the X, which is not interested. YouTube says, “They’ll tune your recommendations.” Now, I won’t see any more recommended videos

  1. Wow..I had no clue you could do this! Sometimes the recommended videos have me like ???!!!! Thanks Herman!

  2. Thank you for this Herman! You watch ONE epic fail video and suddenly YouTube thinks you have the viewing tastes of an 11 year old boy

  3. Wow, I didn't know you could do this! Thanks for the tips. I don't like seeing unrelated videos. Cheers!

  4. Great video Herman. Thank you for the helpful info on removing recommended videos on the YT homepage. I will be putting this into action.

  5. Some of the videos that gets recommended I have no idea why they think I would be interested in them. Thanks!

  6. They are pretty good to recommend what I have watched. However, if I have subscribed to a few that I was interested in, it makes sense to stop seeing even more. Here is an example I was interested in Chair Yoga and picked a few after watching them (subscribed) but I am still seeing more. So it makes sense for me to stop seeing anymore since I have all I need. Thanks Herman

  7. It does not work. Why don't you try it 1st before boasting about it. You only have to like a video, save it to a playlist and Youtube will be forever recommending it to you.

  8. If you are a robot you will believe all the BS about Youtube algorithm. All it does is randomly recommend videos that you have already watch, saved to favorite, liked. Youtube was for fun when I would find random stuff to watch: Youtube are doing a good job of turning us into soulless zombies that watch whatever it recommends.

  9. I FOUND A SOLUTION….USE A BROWSER EXTENSION/ADD ON…IT WILL KNOCK EM ALL OFF..AND YOU CAN ADJUST IT TO YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS ……NOW I HAVE NOTHING BUT A BLANK PAGE…THE WAY I WANT IT….NO MORE GOING DOWN A NEVER ENDING LIST AND DELETING THEM 1 BY 1
