  • First of all, open Discord app on your PC and navigate to the server you want to stream in;
  • Go to the voice channel and click on the “Screen” option in the bottom left corner. If this option is grayed out, it means that you do not have permission to stream in this channel, and you will have to ask the server moderator to change your role;
  • In the next screen, you can select the screen or window you want to share;
