How to Delete a Discord Server on the Desktop Application

Deleting a channel for good on the desktop application only takes a few clicks. Be sure to let everyone in the channel know what you're doing so they're not surprised when it disappears, and then proceed with these steps.

Only the owner of a Discord server can delete it. If you want to become the owner, you either need to have made the server yourself or have someone transfer the ownership to you.

  1. Open the Discord application and select the server you want to delete.
