Need Help with Microphone Configuration?


To configure your microphone settings, follow these steps:
In the bottom left corner of the Discord window, click "Settings"
In the new menu that pops up, click "Voice". In this window, you want to make sure that the selected Input (microphone) and Output (speakers) devices are not on Default, but instead on the device(s) you use, such as your headset.
To setup the Push To Talk key, click "Input Mode" and change it to "Push To Talk". In the box to the right, click inside of it then choose what you want your Push To Talk button to be. For and example mine is Mouse4. Be aware that this key needs to be held down the entire time you talk so be sure to choose something comfortable!




Tired of Hearing that Beep/Ding Noise all the Time?


You can change quite a few Notification settings if things get annoying. 
In the bottom left of Discord, click "Settings" 
In the new menu that pops up, click "Notifications"
Here you can activate or deactivate sounds associated with specific actions. 
While you're there, you can also enable or disable "Desktop Notifications".
