What does the small white number on orange background in the upper right corner of the YouTube desktop icon mean?

And how can I remove it?

This means that you have notifications. You need to enter the app to make it dissapear.


Those number shows your YouTube Pending Notifications. To remove that, open the YouTube App, Goto Activity--> Notifications--> and the click on each notification. Now close the app. Your problem will be solved.
