Pins basically act as a sticky note for a message on Discord. In this article, we’ll discuss pinning messages on the Discord desktop and mobile app, where to find pinned messages, how to remove them, and other odds and ends about pins.
How to Pin Messages on Discord Desktop
Dropping a pin on a Discord server can keep users from having to scroll through new messages to find important information. The server owner and mods with the right privileges will be able to pin messages. Pinning a message takes no time at all on the desktop app.
The first thing you’ll need to do is to open Discord and find the server and channel where you want to pin a message. From this point, complete the following steps:
Right-click the message you want to pin and click “Pin Message” in the dropdown menu.
Alternatively, you can click the three dots on the right-hand side of the message and then click “Pin Message” in the drop-down menu.
In the new pop-up window simply click “Oh yeah, Pin It” to confirm the pin.
A notification will appear in the server channel, informing other users that a new message has been pinned.
How to Pin Messages on Discord Mobile
Pinning a message on Discord is just as easy on the mobile app.
Open Discord and find the server and channel you want to pin a message in.
Tap and hold your finger on the message you want to pin.
In the pop-up menu tap “Pin Message.”
In the new pop-up window tap yes to confirm the pin
How to See Pinned Messages on Discord
Access to your pinned messages is one click away. No matter where you are, desktop or mobile, you can view pinned messages under the pin icon (“Pinned Messages”) in the upper right corner of each server channel. This will open the pinned messages window. Pinned messages are tied to the channel they are pinned in so you will need to go to each channel and click the pin icon to see what messages are pinned in there.
While digging through your pins, you can jump to a pinned message in the chat by clicking the jump button in the top right corner pinned message drop-down menu. This is important if you need to get back to a message to make an edit or if you’re pinning messages for a special reason, like a contest or a quote.
How to Remove Pinned Messages on Discord
Sometimes information is outdated and an old pinned message will have to go. To delete a pin, you will need to complete the following:
Open your pinned messages and click the x icon on the message you want to delete.
A pop-up window will open asking you to confirm this. Click “Remove it Please” to delete.
This is identical on both desktop and mobile Discord apps.
How Many Pins Can You Have on Discord?
You can pin messages to Discord channels 50 times. That is 50 per Discord channel. So if you have three Discord channels in your server, you can pin a total of 150 messages. Don’t go too crazy though. Pins are meant to be important. If everything is pinned it’s hard to dig through and find the really important messages.
