Changing YouTube Channel Display Name

There’s a roundabout route to the Channel Display Name setting on YouTube. I’ve had occasion to need to change it for a couple of clients lately, so this post is by way of a reminder for myself, next time I need to.

N.B. This is currently how it works if you’re already opted in the YouTube One Channel format.

  1. Log in to YouTube and go to your Channel.
  2. Hover over the display name under the Channel Art. Click the pencil icon that appears at the right.
  3. Choose “Channel Settings”
  4. Choose “Advanced” under Channel Settings in the left hand menu
