- Click on the “Sort” icon in the top-right corner
- Select a Sorting Mode
- Drag and drop the channels to change their order
That’s how you move Discord channels on mobile to change their order. It’s easy, and it only takes a couple of seconds to do.
Below, I’ve included a step-by-step guide on how to move Discord channels on mobile, so feel free to check it out!
How Can You Move Discord Channels on Mobile?
If you have Discord on mobile and want to change the order of your server’s channels, there’s an easy way to do this.
Follow the steps below to do it:
1. Tap on your server’s name
When you first open Discord, you’ll land on the main page, in the last chat you’ve interacted in.
Swipe right from the left of the screen to open a menu with all the servers you’re a member of. This is where you’ll find your server too.
Select it, and then look at the top for the name of your server. Tap on it.
2. Select “Settings“
After you tap on your server’s name, a menu will appear at the bottom of the screen with several options. These include “Notifications“, “Settings“, “Invite“, and more.
Select the “Settings” option and proceed to the next steps!
3. Select “Channels“
In your “Server Settings“, you should look for the “Channels” option and select it. This is where you’ll find all the channels belonging to your server.
4. Tap on the “Sort” icon in the top-right corner
Once you get to the “Channels” page on Discord, you’ll see all your channels in one place. To move them, look in the top-right corner for the “Sort” icon.
It’s to the right of the “Channels” title. Tap on it and proceed with the next step.
5. Select a Sorting Mode
After you select the “Sort” icon, a pop-up menu will open at the bottom of the screen. Select one of the options there to proceed.
For this article, I’ve selected “Text Channel“. This lets you order a specific type of channel.
6. Drag and drop the channels
Now, you must drag and drop the channels around until you’re happy with the order. Then, tap “Done” in the top-right corner to save the changes.
To sum it up, you can move channels on Discord mobile by going to the server’s settings and then selecting “Channels“.
Then, use the Sorting Mode to move the channels to any position you want. That’s how you sort your channels on a Discord server.
You don’t need to be the owner of a server to move the channels around. You can sort the channels to your liking as long as you have admin powers.

Why can’t I move the channels to a Discord server?
There’s a big requirement to move channels in a Discord server – having admin privileges.
If you’re just a regular user on a server, you won’t be able to move the channels and change their order.
You’ll need to talk to an admin and convince him to do this for you.
Another possible explanation is that the Discord app is buggy or glitchy. To fix this, try restarting and reinstalling Discord.
That should fix all the bugs, letting you move the channels on your Discord server.
If nothing works, you could submit a report to Discord or contact them on Twitter. They’re very active on Twitter and usually reply within a few hours or days.
How do I rearrange Discord channels on my computer?
Moving Discord channels on a computer is much simpler than on a mobile device.
Open Discord and select your server. Look at your list of channels and hold-click on one of the channels you want to move.
Then, drag it elsewhere on the channel list. You’ll notice that you can move the channel wherever you want.
Release the mouse click to place the channel in a different position.
You don’t need to go to any extra menus like you had to on the mobile Discord app. You can move the channels directly from the main interface on a computer.
You also don’t need to save the changes because the modifications are saved in real-time automatically.
Even if you close and reopen Discord, the channels will be in the last position you moved them.
