How to Upload YouTube Shorts from a Computer

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

YouTube Shorts is a short-form video-sharing option by YouTube, basically a knockoff of TikTok. The platform hosts user content much like YouTube's primary service but limits the short VERTICAL videos to a maximum length of 60 seconds.

  1. Sign in to your YouTube Studio account at:

  2. In the top-right corner, click CREATE. Select "Upload videos".

  3. Select a short-video file on your computer: Up to 60 seconds, with a square or vertical aspect ratio.

  4. Include #Shorts in the video "Description" section to add your video to YouTube Shorts.

PRO TIP: Create YouTube Short directly on your mobile device via the YouTube app (no #shorts required as "Create a Short" is an option on your YouTube mobile app).
