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.

Step 1:

Open your Steam console from your desktop and click on “View” from the top menu.

Step 2:

Click on settings and then click on Interface

Step 3:

From the interface menu:  Check mark “Display Steam URL address bar when available” and hit “Ok.”

Step 4:

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.
