YouTube is one of the most popular video streaming platforms and has been for quite some time. However, with short-form video content now getting popular with the masses, it introduced Shorts as a way to compete with rivals.
Shorts are, as the name suggests, shorter YouTube videos (up to 60 seconds long) and are shot in a vertical format instead of the traditional landscape videos we see.
You can make these using the YouTube app on platforms like Instagram or Tik Tok. However, suppose you’re putting in some work in your video. In that case, you’d most likely want to shoot and edit it individually on a different camera than your smartphone’s and edit it on a program that’ll give you more control.
This article discusses how you can upload YouTube Shorts from your PC, as that’s the most likely destination for your final edit.

Uploading YouTube Shorts from your PC
The process for uploading YouTube Shorts from your PC is identical to the one used for regular uploads. However, there are a few extra steps that you need to keep in mind. Here’s how.
Step 1: Open YouTube in your browser, click the add button in the top right and select Upload Video.
Step 2: Click the Select Files button and navigate to where your video is saved. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop it in the box.
Step 3: Write the title and description of the video. Make sure you include #shorts in either one of those. Click Next when you’re done.
Step 4: Add any video elements if required. Click Next when you’re done.
Step 5: Finally, select the visibility settings for your video and determine when you’d want to make it live. Click Save when you’re done.
And that’s all you need to do to upload a Shorts video from your PC.
