Introduction

If you’ve ever found yourself asking where are my playlists on YouTube, then you’ve come to the right place! Playlists are saved in the user’s Library tab, which is easily accessible. If you can’t find them there, you will have to re-save it.

Saving the videos in playlists is convenient if you need to access them later. You can save your favorite dramas or create a song playlist that you want to listen to while travelling. Although saving a video is fairly easy, locating the actually playlist can be quite a pain at times. In this article, we will clear up any queries you might have about the location of your YouTube playlists.

Creating and Managing Playlists on YouTube

  • Select Delete

If the deleted playlist was set to Public, it may still exist in other users’ libraries if they’ve saved it. However, it won’t be visible in search results anymore.

Where are my Playlists on YouTube?

Playlists in YouTube are always saved in your Library so, if you can’t find the one you are looking for, you need to look again carefully. There is a possibility that you might have missed it before. To find your playlists on YouTube in your computer, just go to Guide (three Lines) and then go to your Library. You can access your playlists from there.

If you still can’t find the playlist, then it didn’t get saved in the first place. You need to go back and save it again.
