Run as Administrator
Some games (like SWTOR) that must be run as administrator require Discord to also be run as administrator for push-to-talk to work correctly.

Right-click on the Discord shortcut and click the “Run as administrator” or you can also select Properties, Compatibility, check “Run this program as an administrator”, and then Apply).

Turn Off Annoying PTT Beeps
Select User Settings, Notifications, and then uncheck “PTT Activate” and “PTT Deactivate”.

Voice Input/Output/PTT
Under User mode, Settings select Voice & Video and then set your Input mode, Output Device, and output mode (Push to Talk). This link is good to troubleshoot audio issues.

Setting an Avatar
Under User, Settings select My Account, Edit, and then Change Avatar.

Turning on the Overlay
This link is a handy walk-through. Under User, Settings select Overlay and Enable in-game overlay. Make sure the game you are running is being run as administrator (assuming you’ve now set Discord to run as administrator). Basically, they need to be the same.

Hiding Text Channels
Right-click the text channel to hide and click the Mute box. I highly recommend doing this for all channels associated with games you do not play. Then, right-click the channel list box and select “Hide Muted Channels”.
