If you're reading this, then you probably want to know how to download YouTube music on Win 10. Good news: you can easily do that using YouTube Music Downloader for Win 10.

More good news: it's actually legal to download YouTube videos. Google - the parent company of YouTube - offers a "Fair Use" license for YT content. That means you can stream and download the content freely provided you don't reproduce, copy, sell or use it commercially without permission from the copyright owner(s).
