Sometimes, you just don't want your raid groups' endless tirade over who stole the loot in the last dungeon to be the first thing greeting you when you boot up your computer. We get that. Here's how to set Discord so that you decide when you're ready to take sides in that discussion:
1. Open the system tray
Head over to the bottom-right hand corner of your desktop, and click the arrow to pull up your system tray.
Brightly colored circles not included, unfortunately.
2. Right click the Discord icon
Simple enough. Your system tray will probably look a little different, but that cute little alien face should be in that menu somewhere. Make sure to right click!
Blue circle this time, folks.
3. Disable startup
Deselect the "run on startup" option.
That's it. We'll leave the overly-attached Discord client jokes for another post.
