Here is the easiest way to turn the trailers off while you’re watching Netflix.
Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services available right now, with hundreds of shows and movies to choose from. You can spend hours scrolling through the platform to find the perfect movie, with more titles being added every day.
However, whilst scrolling through the platform you may have noticed that most shows and movies will autoplay if you hover over them for enough time, showing either a trailer or a snippet of the show.
If you want to learn how to disable that feature so you can find your next favourite show in peace, make sure you keep reading, as we’re going to show you how.
What you need:
- We used a Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022) (11th-gen) running Windows 11, but any computer with browser access will do the trick
