    Find the YouTube application, and tap on it once to open the application. The YouTube application icon looks like a red button with a white triangle inside, with "YouTube" written underneath. Your YouTube application may be in a different position in this folder, therefore you will need to find it.

    Now, we need to find the settings menu by tapping on the icon in the top-right that looks like three small black dots in a vertical line. This will open up a small menu. In this example, there are issues with the internet connection, but it will not affect the tutorial at all.
