Discord: How to set up push to talk.
A short informative tutorial on how to set up “Push To Talk” in Discord. As much as I love Discord for voice chatting, I can see how people will find it confusing. I remember when I was new to Discord; it was so mind numbing that I ended up staring blankly at the screen and drooling on myself.
Ok, so yeah, follow these steps:
Pro Tip: Download Discord to your desktop. It’s so much better than messing with the website browser one.
Step One: Open your desktop Discord
Step Two: Go all the way to the bottom where your profile picture is. You will see a icon that looks like a gear wheel. Click that.
Step Three: Scroll down the side menu and look for Voice / Video and click that.
Step Four: I’m assuming you will have your input and output device set up. If not, this is where you need to do it at.
Step Five: Check mark “Push to Talk”
Step Six: Click into the box and hold down two keys that you want to use.
Step Seven: Click the ESC at the top. It will automatically save your settings.
Note You can also do a mic / push to talk test on the same page.
How to find your Steam profile ID number.
There are a handful of games out there that require you have your “Steam ID” number and Steam doesn’t make it really that easy to find. So I thought I would list the steps here.
Open your Steam console from your desktop and click on “View” from the top menu.
Click on settings and then click on Interface
From the interface menu: Check mark “Display Steam URL address bar when available” and hit “Ok.”
Once, you hit ok, the menu will close out. Go to your profile. Your ID number will appear at the very end of web link.
