Troubleshooting Discord: 6 Ways to Fix User Volume Resets

Is Discord constantly changing your computer's volume settings, and it's been bothering you even after you've tried adjusting it manually? Well, you're in luck because there are a few simple things you can do to stop this from happening.

Make the volume the same on Discord's computer and phone apps

If you use Discord on both your iPhone and Android phone with the same account, it's important to keep the volume settings consistent between your mobile app and desktop app. This is because any changes you make to the volume on your phone will also affect the volume on your desktop. Discord makes sure that your settings are the same on all your devices.

So, if you're experiencing random volume issues on your Discord desktop app, you can fix it by adjusting the volume on your Discord mobile app to match your desktop preference. Here's how:

1. Open Discord on your phone.

2. Tap on your profile picture at the bottom of the screen.

3. Select "Voice."

4. Use the "Volume" slider to set the volume level to your liking, making sure it matches what you want on your desktop.

By doing this, you'll ensure that your Discord volume settings stay consistent across both your mobile and desktop devices.

Open your Discord desktop app, and you'll notice that it now shares the same volume level as your phone app. Everything is ready to go.

Update Discord on Your Computer

If you're still having trouble with Discord's sound, it could be because you're using an older version of Discord that has some bugs. To solve this, you should update your Discord app to the newest version.

Update Your Windows, Mac, or Linux Operating System

If you're still having trouble with the sound on your Discord app after updating it, there might be an issue with your computer's settings. This can be especially true if your computer's operating system is outdated.

A simple way to solve this is by making sure your Windows 11, Windows 10, Mac, or Ubuntu Linux operating system is up to date. Updating your system can fix many problems, including the one you're experiencing with Discord.

Delete Discord's Cache Files

Discord saves some temporary files on your computer to help make the app work better. Sometimes, when there are problems with the app, these temporary files, called the cache, might get messed up. To fix this, you can clear out Discord's cache.

Clearing Discord's cache won't make you lose your account information, and Discord will make new, clean cache files for you.

Here's how to clear Discord's cache on both Windows and Mac:


1. Close Discord completely (make sure it's not running in the background).

2. Press Win + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog.

3. Type %appdata% and press Enter. This will open the AppData folder.

4. Find the Discord folder and open it.

5. Inside the Discord folder, locate the "Cache" and "CacheData" folders and delete them.

6. Restart Discord to see if the problem is fixed.


1. Close Discord (make sure it's not running).

2. Open the "Finder" on your Mac.

3. In the menu bar at the top, click on "Go" and select "Go to Folder."

4. Type ~/Library/Application Support and click "Go."

5. Find the "Discord" folder and open it.

6. Locate and delete the "Cache" and "CacheData" folders.

7. Start Discord again and check if the issue is resolved.

Give this a try, and hopefully, your Discord problems will be fixed after clearing the cache.

Reset Discord’s Voice Settings

If Discord keeps changing your volume settings, it might be because your voice settings in the app are not set up correctly. If you're not sure which option is causing the issue, you can reset your voice settings back to the way they were when you first installed the app. This will remove any changes you've made and restore the default settings.

To do this, open Discord on your computer and click on "User Settings" (it looks like a gear icon) in the bottom-left corner of the app. On the left side, click on "Voice & Video." Then, on the right side, at the bottom, click on "Reset Voice Settings."

In the message that pops up, click "Okay" to reset the settings. After that, close Discord and open it again to see if your problem is fixed.

Uninstall and Reinstall Discord

If you've tried everything else and your Discord app is still not working properly, you might need to uninstall and then reinstall it. This process will replace any potentially broken files with fresh ones.

Don't worry, though – removing the app won't delete your servers, chats, or other stuff. When you log back in, Discord will bring all of that back for you.

To delete Discord from your Windows 11 computer, follow these simple steps:

1. Open Settings.

2. Click on "Apps."

3. Find "Installed Apps" and click on it.

4. Look for "Discord" in the list.

5. Click the three dots next to "Discord."

6. Choose "Uninstall."

7. Confirm by selecting "Uninstall" again.

That's it! Discord will be removed from your PC.

Uninstall and Reinstall Discord

To remove Discord from your Windows 10 computer, follow these steps:

1. Go to Settings.

2. Click on Apps.

3. Find "Discord" in the list of installed apps.

4. Click on it.

5. Choose "Uninstall."

6. Confirm the uninstallation when prompted.

That's it! Discord will be removed from your Windows 10 PC.

Uninstall and Reinstall Discord

If you use a Mac, go to Finder, open the "Applications" folder, right-click on "Discord," and select "Move to Trash."

Uninstall and Reinstall Discord

To solve a sound issue with Discord on your computer, start by removing Discord from your system. After that, visit the official Discord website and get the latest version of the app. Install it on your computer, and you should be all set. Your Discord volume problem should be fixed, and you can enjoy using the app again!
