Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show that we are not interested in videos recommended to us by YouTube on an HTC One M8.


Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone
    .
    Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.

  3. 3
    It is in this area that we need to focus now because we need to open up the Applications folder
    .
    To do that we are going to need this icon located at the bottom of the home screen. In the middle, we can see that there is a grid made up of white dots. Press down on this icon and it will open up our applications folder.

  4. 4
    In this folder, we need to find the YouTube application
    .
    Mine is located here. We can see that there is the YouTube icon, which is a big red button and inside there is a white triangle. Underneath, it says the word "YouTube". Our YouTube application may be in different positions within this folder. Therefore, we need to find it and press down on the icon to enter the application. In this video tutorial, we will learn how to show that we are not interested in the videos recommended to us by YouTube. This is a very useful thing for us to do because it allows YouTube to see what videos we like and are interested in and then it will save those preferences and those results so that in the future, they can try only to show us videos that we are interested and not just show us lots of videos that we are not interested in.

  5. 5
    To do this, we need first to select a video
    .
    Let's find "Iron Sky: The Coming Race Teaser TRAILER (2015)". I've never heard of this film. I'm sure it is wonderful, but we're just going to use it as an example.

  6. 6
    To do that then, we need to use this icon here
    .
    We can see on the far right-hand side of the screen that there are three small gray dots and a vertical line. Every video has this icon. This is the settings icon for that particular video. Press down on this icon and it will open up a little menu. At the top, it will say, "NOT INTERESTED".

    If we press down on these words, "NOT INTERESTED", it will say "Got it
    .
    We'll tune your recommendations."

  8. 8
    It's taken away that video, and it's saved that information so that in the future, it can try not to show us videos like that
    .
    It can just show us videos that we're interested in. That is really helpful.
