Discord is one of the most popular gaming and communication platforms out there. It’s great for gamers, streamers, and anyone who wants to communicate online. One great feature Discord offers the ability to share your screen with other users. This can be super useful if you want to show someone something on your computer or compete in a gaming tournament. This blog post will walk you through how to share your screen on Discord. From setting up a call, sharing your entire desktop, or just a specific program window, we’ve got all the information you need to ensure your sharing experience goes smoothly. So let’s get started!
Download the Discord App
You’ll need to download the Discord app if you want to share your screen on Discord. This is a quick and easy process – just head to the Discord website and click the “Download” button.
Once the Discord app is downloaded, open it and login or create an account. Then, find the server you want to share your screen with and click on it. The channel list will have a “Share Your Screen” button – click that, and you’re ready to go!
It’s important to note that you can only share your screen with other online users – so if nobody is around to see what you’re up to, there’s no point in sharing your screen. But if you’re looking for a way to show off what you’re working on or just share something fun with friends, Discord is a great option.
Create an Account
Discord is a voice and text chat app for gamers that lets you easily share your screen with other users. Here’s how to set up and use Discord screen sharing on your PC or Mac.
1. Open the Discord app and sign in.
2. Click on the user settings icon in the bottom-left corner of the window.
3. Select “Voice & Video” from the list of options.
4. Under “Input Device,” select your microphone from the drop-down menu.
5. Under “Output Device,” select your speakers from the drop-down menu.
6. Click on the “Screen Share” button in the window’s bottom-right corner.
7. A new window will pop up, asking you to select which window you want to share. Select the desired window and click on the “Share” button.
Your screen will now be shared with other users in your Discord channel!
Find the Screen Share Feature
Assuming you’re using the desktop app, you first need to click the “hamburger” icon in the top-left corner of the window (it looks like three horizontal lines). This will open up a menu on the left side of the screen. From this menu, select “User Settings.”
Once you’re in User Settings, select “Voice & Video” from the list of options on the left side of the screen. The “Voice & Video” section has a choice for “Screen Share Method.” By default, this is set to “None.” Click on that option and change it to either “Discord Screen Share” or “Discord Server Voice Activity.”
If you choose “Discord Screen Share,” a small pop-up window will appear. You can choose whether to share your entire screen or just a single window in this window. You also have the option to include audio in your screen share. Once you’ve made your selections, click “Share.”
If you choose “Discord Server Voice Activity,” your screen share will start automatically whenever you join a voice channel on that server. You can stop sharing your screen anytime by clicking the button in the bottom-left corner of the Discord window (it looks like a monitor with a slash through it).
How to Use the Screen Share Feature
If you’re new to Discord, you may not be familiar with the screen share feature. Here’s a quick guide on how to use it:
To start, make sure you have the latest version of Discord installed. Then, launch the app and log in to your account.
Once logged in, locate the server you want to share your screen in the left sidebar. Click on it to open the server.
Now, find the channel you want to share your screen on. Again, click on it to open the channel.
At the bottom of the channel window, you’ll see an icon that looks square with an arrow pointing out. This is the screen share icon and click on it.
A pop-up window will appear asking if you want to share your entire screen or just a specific window. Choose whichever option you prefer and click “Share.”
And that’s all there is to it! Your screen will now be shared with everyone on the channel. Click on the screen share icon to stop sharing and select “Stop Sharing.”
