    I am trying to migrate from my Ipad to my new Surface Pro 6 and need some help regarding youtube.

    On the Ipad, in the youtube app, if I want to forward / rewind a video 10 secs, I just double-click the right / left part of the screen.

    I get similar control in keyboard mode in the Surface Pro 6: I can use the right / left arrow keys for 5 sec forward / rewind in youtube.com

    But I don't know how to forward / rewind 5 or 10 secs at a time in tablet mode on my SP6.

    TIA.

    I think the only way this functionality would be implemented is if they made a Windows 10 app for YouTube instead of loading the page in Edge. Hopefully they figure out a way to enable this functionality as I use it a lot on my iOS devices, but do miss it when I'm using my Surface Pro 6 in Tablet Mode.

    Running into a similar issue here... Every time I want to do something in YouTube, I need to pause the video to get the controls on screen.

    In some cases I use myTube. Works nice and every now and then they have a discount that you can get it for free

    mytube beta is a better bet. The controls and features are great and it's free. Sometimes a little pop asking for donations comes on when loading, but thats only at the beginning.

    Get myTube Beta - Microsoft Store en-IN

    edit: it'll ask for EN version when you click it no worries

    Is myTube the better bet than YouTube? Or is myTube Beta the better bet than myTube?

    i did pay for mytube, but i find myTube Beta better. The beta version kinda performs like the android app version, including a floating player when you go back to browse videos.

    I wasn't aware of that. But I don't find it the most important feature. Would like larger buttons to pause etc though. When in traffic jams I like to use it to play some videos

    Let us know what you think of it. The creators of this app also made Spotimo. That's a mix between Spotify and Groove music

    MyTube has disadvantages as well - you don't have the curated list of what you might like (based on prior preferences) provided by youtube.

    Too bad - I hoped that this device would completely replace my Ipad. But it won't. I'll need both. :(
