Trying to set up Discord for clan battles;  to get into Discord while playing I figure I should be set up as Windowed; wont do it.  Get a blank black screen.  Restart the game and it goes back to Full screen windowed where I cant access anything outside the game.  Might be a setting that I don't know about.  Help please.

I always have to Alt+Tab to get to other programs and then return to the game....having a dual monitor helps as you can get whatever you want on one screen situated then return to the game screen.

While I use Restream chat for twitch and youtube, it can be set up for discord as well from what I can tell. 

A youtube that might be applicable on the chat window over the game thing, if thats what you're after

Discord on PC has always been made of wet cardboard and failure. I gave up long ago getting it to run on my main PC.

It runs on my phone just fine as well as on my secondary PC.

Before launching Wows I start Discord make sure I’m on the Clan battle channel and then just start Wows ... that’s it for me works great

I use discord for clan battles. Start it prior to using wows.

Also run the overlay to see who is speaking. 

I run in windowless full screen so when i alt tab the game still displays just with the other windows on top.

Set WoWs to Windowed/Borderless, rather than full screen. IT will still take up the full screen, but you can alt-tab away or hit the windows key without it having to shift screen modes. You won't get that long black blank screen in between programs.

Hmm. I am able to hit the Windows key and switch between programs in full screen and/or windowed mode.

I have been using Discord with WoW for quite a while.  I have never had any problems with it.  As has been said, you can use ALT-TAB to switch between windows and/or run it on a different monitor (assuming you have dual screens).  For voice programs, you sometimes have to run the voice program "as an Administrator" to make sure that your push-to-talk key is not overridden.  Especially in the latter case, it is always best to start Discord first, then start the game.

First off, in the screen I have up, ALT/TAB works just fine; will try the WINDOWS KEY also.  As for Discord, I started it before WOW and it shows "Nobody is playing anything right now".  Did show at one point that I had been playing previously; update - push to talk is checked and the WINDOWS KEY brings up the large programs page, but I can get at everthing on the task bar so that is a good thing.  Looks like discord it not seeing me running in WOW at this point.

Have you:

A) Downloaded the discord app, as opposed to running it in your browser?

B) Actually joined your clan's server within discord?  

Once you do those, there are both chat channels and voice channels.  They're customizable so no way to tell how your clan's discord admin set them up but they should be pretty obvious.

interesting;  was invited into a 2 person division and all of a sudden we are talking using the V key.  I don't see that it had anything at all to do with Discord; still not seeing me!!

 

 

But now I found this out!!

From one old guy to another I know the feeling, it was a bit of a challenge for me also luckily I think you’ll find that Discord is user friendly and your Clan was my best resource.. good luck
