Move Discord Channels on Mobile
The process is simple although counter-intuitive. To learn how to move channels on Discord mobile, you can watch the video below or follow the step-by-step tutorial after the video.
1. Tap on ‘More Options’
To begin with, tap on the server’s name or long-press the server’s icon on the left panel and select ‘More Options’.
2. Enter the server’s settings
Then, tap on ‘Settings’.
3. Tap on ‘Channels’
Once you enter the server’s settings, tap on ‘Channels’.
4. Reorder categories, text channels, and voice channels
Then, tap on ‘Reorder’ in the upper right corner of the screen. From there, a menu will pop up at the bottom. You can select to reorder categories, text channels, or voice channels.
5. Save changes
Once you organize all channels, simply click on ‘Done’ at the upper right corner of the screen to save the changes.
Move Discord Channels on Desktop
Reordering channels on Discord desktop is easier and more intuitive than doing it on mobile. To do so, click on each text channel and drag it wherever you want. To reorder categories or voice channels, the process is exactly the same.
