End All App Processes
Using the task manager, try killing all app services. For example, when you launch an app, various background services linked to that app are launched. You may face troubles like these as a result of these background services. So you must locate and kill the service that is causing the issue. Using the task manager function in Windows 10, you may forcibly stop any app or service.
1 – Click Win + R to open the Run command box, type “taskmgr” and press Enter. This command will launch the task manager.
2 – Find all Discord-related services and click End Process.
3 – Restart your computer and then restart your Discord app. This will easily restart all Discord services and resolve the issue.
Delete Discord App Data
1 – Launch file explorer by pressing Win + E on your keyboard, and then go to your OS installation drive. It’s a C drive, in my instance.
2 – Go to Users and open your user folder (your computer name). In my situation, the answer is “Mike.”
3 – Now, go to the AppData folder. If you cannot see it, enable the “hidden items” option in the folder settings. To enable it, go to the View tab in file explorer and tick the “hidden items” option. All hidden files and folders are now visible.
4 – Navigate to the AppData folder, followed by the Roaming folder. The Discord folder may be found here. This route will take you straight to the Roaming folder location.
5 – Right-click and delete the Discord folder.
Well, if it says, “some files couldn’t have been deleted,” it means your app is running in the background. It would be best if you used the task manager to close it forcibly. Open task manager from the taskbar > find the Discord app > right-click it and select End task.
Delete the discord folder now. Let us now delete the localappdata folder.
1 – Press the Win + R key to open the Run command box.
2 – Type “%localappdata%” > click enter.
3 – Locate and delete the Discord folder.
