How to adjust and use Discord for your preferences? In the first part of the post will be timestamps.

Press CTRL + F if you are using Google Chrome, you will have this image* in the top right corner of your screen, and write a key word you want to find about (etc. write push to talk in that little toolbar)

Complete Guide for Discord - All you need to know

Downloading Discord


Discord Servers

In this part of the video I covered all of the options you have when you join a Discord server.



App settings


Push to talk voice chat demand from server


Push to talk

I suggest using "alt" as your keybind for push to talk option, some people use shift, and then they get sticky keys. But you can use any button on your keyboard/mouse you want.


User settings

Setting up avatar, your nickname and staying safe.




Direct messages

Here I covered all the functions you have in direct messages.

Thank you @positivity420. As always you're giving a hand to new people and instructions how to start. I think that's a massive help for those who're new because a lot of people on their beginnings didn't have any help and had to learn all by themselves. Discord is really parallel world among Steemit and I've found there a lot of good people who've helped me a lot. I appreciate your work here and effort you invest. Wish you very best :)


Thank you for the love, I am always happy to help, I love seeing genuine good people succeed and strive to improve daily, if you are the best version of yourself you can influence a lot more on people and make their lives better, 1 person at a time <3

Thanks bro, again Positive thinking and sharing! Love it!

We need this in one place and thanks! Trš trš! :D


Always sharing the good vibes! Thank you :)

Where were you when I needed help with discord? Haha I hope no one will have again problems with discord as I did thanks to your tutorial!


I was stupid enough to not make the tutorial haha :) Thank you for the kind words my friend. <3

You did an excellent job with this, now I have a place to direct people when they have troubles with discord. Thank you.


Thanks, love helping people. Always :)

nice one. i needed help with this.


Thanks, happy to help. :)

Great job my friend! Your effort is appreciated!


I am glad it is. Thank you!

Good and fast tutorial, everything was said. :)


I don't think it was fast... 17 minutes xD Thanks!

Svaka cast na postu @positivity420 !



Thank you for the information because I have not been able to figure out how to connect to voice on my computer. I have the push to talk setup, but didn't know what to push. I am on a Mac which is too outdated to download the app, so I have to use the website version of Discord. That actually is also a problem for other places, such as Dtube, so I am not able to watch your video. I will try using the command key on my Mac keyboard to see if that works


No problem :) It's what it's for.

How do you mean "too outdated to download the app". Are you sure you can't download Mac version?


Yes, too outdated. I am on OSX 10.6.8 and many apps/websites will not load correctly. They tell me so. Not all, but some. I think I got the push to talk set up and will test it out soon.


Ahh, just did some research since I've never used a Mac, maybe this could help you (if you have 4 gb ram)
