    Can we get an option for start minimized (in the background)?

    @Khaos-Rage I know that one's been suggested quite a few times, be sure to check out feedback.discordapp.com and upvote it there! More upvotes = more priority = out sooner!

    This should be in the normal settings too. Only reason it wouldn't be is if you are wanting it to be harder to turn off.

    And make your logout button more obvious so people don't have to google how to do it.

    Amazing

    Maybe adding 1 for Mac would help .-.

    @Emproxx Discord isn't set to auto-launch on startup for Mac. That setting is controlled separately by long-clicking the Discord icon.

    Thanks! This was easy. Although I did not think to look here first. It took me a while to look through ALL of the settings to realize this feature wasn't there... Would be great to have this feature added to the main settings.

    ... and yes, I upvoted the relevant suggestion on the feedback page!

    Great, it works for Windows - which helps me at home. But, what about my Apple Macintosh Book II Pro Lisa Computer built by Steve Jobs himself since the 1980ies?

    I was going through the settings to find this settings for about 10 minutes.

    When I found out you could only disable this through the tray icon, I got really annoyed. Really bad design decision!

    On one hand, I easily found the answer to this question here, so thank you. On the other hand, I am surprised that the option to turn off open at start wasn't in the actual settings on discord. It would have saved me some time.

    I can't tell you how annoying and frustrating things set up this way are. If i want it to start at statup i'll set it that way. Don't force it down my throat and then make me take it off. It's rude and annoying beyond belief.

    @Drjeebus Sorry about that. =/ I'll pass your feedback along to the team and see if we can improve there.

    I don't know how to "upvote" a suggestion on here, but I would also like to see the option to enable/disable auto-start in the regular settings area of the program. It's been bothering me for weeks and it shouldn't take a trip to your website to find out how not to be frustrated.

    Yeah sure. This issue has been open since january and you won't make me believe that this is a complicated thing to change. Nor that it requires a huge amount of time for a dev to remove that stupid autostart on startup option. Please cut the bullshit, I have friends (many) who completely uninstalled the software because it was starting automatically with their computer and they didn't know they were streaming their all personnal life to people connected to the channel. That's basic common sense, and it has a huge impact on privacy. This should never be a default on option and making it so difficult to turn off makes people (rightfully) wonder what your intentions are with this. Do you plan on listening to and syping on people's life ? Do you artificially try to boost you user count ? I understand my friends who told me that this was bullshit, lost their trust and uninstalled it right away.

    Also, nice going hiding the website's unfollow post so many layers deep. Found it under My Activities > Following > This horrible post > unfollow. Why not add unfollow here or in the 5 emails I get each day about this issue?

    @Islay Tzash That's a setting made by the website host, not us, unfortunately. I wrote an article on that process specifically, as I know it's a little difficult to find.
