Option To Hide Sidebar



  • amias

    Bumping this because there are more reasons than just video call. I use split windows on both my monitors and the channel sidebar takes up a lot of real estate when the Discord window is really small.

    The users panel collapses (thank god) so why can't the channel list minimize too?

  • Nahuel Arjona

    Bump this! Also because of split screen. It really takes A LOT of space. 99% of the time I care about a specific channel on a specific server. I'm switching around channels maybe 3-5 times a day, but I'm forced to see the entire panel for 9 hours. Would be awesome to hide it.

  • Nendo

    Bump, wondering why this hasn't be actioned.

  • Thundzz

    Please implement this feature, it's really annoying to have that side bar always there.

  • McShivers411

    For the love of all things good and holy, it's 2020 please give us a way to hide that bloated cow of a sidebar that takes up a quarter of the window.

  • OrchestraHeart

    please, for the love of god, it takes up so much of my laptop screen and I multitask!

  • Davedwin

    Click on the user icon at the top, and it hides the user list.

  • bruhm0m3ntum

    Bump, I have a miniature 1:1.5 monitor and I want to be able to use it for discord.

  • PerspicuousEnigma

    Bippity boppity bump.  Please let us hide the sidebars.


    EDIT: Clicking on the member icon at the top does, in fact, hide the right sidebar.  Thanks!

  • Sawel

    Bump: the sidebar makes using the webapp on mobile impossible; the option to hide the sidebar is also hidden.

    I also could really use this. I have been trying to use discord on a raspberry pi with a tiny touchscreen, but it only shows 2 letters of space in the main column :( 

  • fczuardi

    Telegram auto-hides the channel bar when the width is bellow a certain amount. Discord on the other hand will take 392px of precious horizontal real estate no matter what :(

  • kingkoa

    please, implement this option!!

  • Davedwin

    What type of devices are you guys using? On my Galaxy 8+ both sidebars disappear and the keyboard in no way affects or blocks my chat. 

  • Kyrios

    This is for the Desktop client, not mobile.

  • amias

    Bumping again, and yeah, this is specifically about the channels sidebar in the desktop client and browser client. There's no way to minimize the channel list, like you can with the user list. Mobile client already does this automatically.

    Please let us minimize the channel list. It would really save a lot of hassle.

  • MindTooth


    Why even make it fixed in the first place.  It's not that I need the sidebar when I try to view a video chat/stream.  I have no need to put my face into the screen to see the text.  Does not even help that the basic Discord only has 720p..

  • GrantMoyer

    I've made a userstyle which implements this for the webapp: https://gitlab.com/GrantMoyer/collapsing-sidebars-for-discord/-/tree/master

  • thainayu

    Seriously, this is one reason I don't use discord

  • builderpepc

    Really would be a good feature, especially when trying not to get distracted or when you have a small-size window and you're trying to maximize space. You can already hide the member list, but not the server list.

  • CosmicMishap

    Please can we get this added (for desktop/browser)? Doing split screen with Discord is such an annoyance sometimes because you can't hide the left column....

  • aevilok

    Bumping this. Channel list should be auto-hide.

  • cagwah

    Bumping this.

  • HerCerM

    Bumping this. It would make using Discord much more pleasant for video calls

  • Nahuel Arjona

    It's been more than a year already. Is the codebase so messed up that this is not a possibility? Can't think of a single draw back of implementing this, and I do see a huge UX win for many of us.

    Either that panel is the most spaghetti of all spaghetti codes, or there's a really good deliberate reason behind this. I can't think of one right now....

  • SeerLite

    Hi I'm just jumping on the bump train

  • andi

    Yes, I would love support for smaller screensizes. Please create functionality to hide channel section

  • Granny Rags

    Pls make this a feature, I use my laptop as a second monitor and it becomes too small to fit two tabs.

  • SanaDeVil

    Bump I still cant use most of my screen because of this. At the very least let us be able to resize how wide the sidebars are instead of keeping them the same size and shrinking the actual text channels.

  • SeerLite

    Bump! Everyone else getting the notifications, bump too! Let's get some attention here :)

    They wouldn't have to worry about this stuff if they allowed third party clients in the first place
