This method uses a simple cookie to enable the new layout. Following are the required instructions:

2. Now press following keys in your web browser:

 Internet Explorer -F12, Mozilla Firefox - CTRL+SHIFT+K,  Google Chrome - CTRL+SHIFT+J, Opera - CTRL+SHIFT+I

3. What the above keys do is open developer tools(console) in the respective browser. Type the foll. line in the console and hit enter : 

document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=nH7tBenIlCs”;

4. Now, load/reload(as applicable) YouTube page by pressing F5 key.

5. That’s it. Now you’ll be able to enjoy the new YouTube layout design as shown in the above screenshot.

Note : If you don’t like the new design, you can clear browser cookies to revert back to the old layout.
