How to Turn Threads On or Off on Discord?

Did you open Discord, and the threads aren’t turned on? Or do you want to turn them off for some reason?

Theoretically, the threads should be turned on by default. But if something’s wrong, they may be turned off.

This guide will teach you how to turn them on or off.

You may want to turn them off if you’re on a large server with people talking constantly.

How to turn threads on or off on Discord?

Currently, there isn’t an option to turn the Discord threads on because it’s a default option. If they’re off even though they should be on, you can try reinstalling the app. If you’re on a computer, uninstall Discord and then go to https://discord.com/ and click on “Download for Windows” on the homepage.

How Can You Turn the Discord Threads On or Off?

Currently, there isn’t an option to turn the Discord threads on because it’s a default option.

If they’re off even though they should be on, you can try reinstalling the app.

If you’re on a computer, uninstall Discord and then go to https://discord.com/ and click on “Download for Windows” on the homepage.

Install Discord and see if the threads are on. This time, they should be on.

If you want to turn them off, follow the steps below:

  • Go to the server’s settings
Go to the server’s settings
Go to the server’s settings

Open Discord and go to your server. Then, you’ll see an arrow to the right of your server’s name.

Click on it, and this will open a new menu.

You’ll see several options like “Server Boost,” “Invite People,” “Server Settings,” and more.

Click on “Server Settings.”

  • Select “Roles”
Select “Roles”
Select “Roles”

Opening the server’s settings will open a new window.

To the left-hand side, you’ll see a panel of menus, starting with Overview, which has many options like “Roles,” “Emoji,” “Stickers,” and so on.

Click on “Roles” to proceed to the next step.

This is where you can turn the Discord threads on or off on your server.

If you don’t want to be bothered by message notifications constantly, you should turn them off.

  • Click on “Default Permissions”
Click on “Default Permissions”
Click on “Default Permissions”

The “Roles” section contains all the settings you can establish for different roles in your server.

You can do so from this place if you want to mute a certain role.

Or if you want to stop a certain role from seeing a channel, this is where you do it from.

  • Select “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads”
Select “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads”
Select “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads”

Once you click “Default Permissions,” you’ll be taken to the Permissions tab.

Here, you can edit permissions for every role.

There’s an entire list of permissions to edit in the list. Scroll down until you see the “Text Channel Permissions” menu.

Under it, the first option you’ll see is the “Send Messages” option. Leave that one alone.

Below, you’ll see the “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads” options.

Disable those by clicking on the green checkmark. This will turn it into a grey X, which means the permission is disabled. 

Finally, click on Save Changes at the bottom to save your changes.

Click on Save Changes at the bottom to save your changes
Click on Save Changes at the bottom to save your changes

If you don’t do that, the permissions will be reactivated if you close the Settings window.

Now that you turned off the Public and Private threads, no one on your server will be able to open new threads.

If you want to turn them back on, return to the Permissions menu and check the “Create Public Threads” and “Create Private Threads” options back on.

Remember, the permissions are activated when there’s a green checkmark next to them.

Conclusion

Threads are lines of conversation that you create starting from a certain topic or message in a channel.

By default, members of a Discord server can create public and private threads.

But if you don’t want things to be too chaotic in your channels, you can turn off public threads.

As for private threads, you can leave them on.

To turn them off or on, go to Server Settings – Roles – Default Permissions – Create Public/Private Threads.

Check or uncheck the public/private threads options, and that’s it!
