The video is still applicable for the recent R version with one exception: For R 4.2.x the location of the user library (mentioned after minute 10 in the video) has changed. It is now found in the folder `c:\Users\\AppData\Local\R\` where is the login name of the current user.

This is a hidden folder of Windows, so may not be easy to find. However, it is always better to use the regular way to keep the set of packages up to date, so the last part of the video is just a last resort method.
