Make Discord @#$@#$ing Narrower

Make Discord @#$@#$ing Narrower

Because the Discord app takes up too much bloody space. These are instructions I found online and they do work. 

Discord has some hard-coded placements in the app, so they also put in a limit for the minimum size of the window. Well, fortunately, they also told us how to remove that in a Reddit post. You'll need to edit the settings.json file to do so. You can find this file at:

C:\Users\"Your user"\AppData\Roaming\discord\settings.json

Open the file and add


between the IS_MINIMIZED and WINDOW_BOUNDS lines.

Once you've made the changes, save the file and restart Discord (close it through the systray icon). Now you should be able to resize to however you'd like.

The only issue I've come across is the "X" is off-screen in the Settings, so I have to widen the window to click it.

Also, if you use the BetterDiscord plugin (and you should!) this is a good css theme for collapsing the sidebar.

Having successfully invaded both America and Canada from her home base in Windsor, Paisley has become horribly corrupted by the world. She hates active voice and wished to god Twitter had an edit button but is now glad to be rid of that place. Dedicated to "creating the greatest 'Ship of them all", she ponders horribly terrible, idiotic things for your amusement.

I'm a snarky, semi-horrible human being given to penning intentionally bad epic slashfiction involving improbable objects and individuals, with the ultimate ambition of befouling Kindle with it one day,which is ostensibly what this blog is for.

In practice, however, it tends to mainly be a circular file for my various thoughts and ideas, some whimsical and others not, in addition to my various Photoshop experiments, mainly collections of what I originally generated for Twitter but now do for Mastodon Threads Bluesky thanks to Twitter becoming a fascist hellscape.

I also have a sideproject doing art for my addition to Doctor Who fanon, Karnian Script which is a more sigil-based, witchy take on Galifreyan variants.
