Every device lets you clear Discord’s cache.

You can clear Discord’s cache on your Mac or PC by deleting the dedicated “Cache” folder.
On an Android device, you can clear Discord’s cache through the Settings app.
On an iPhone or iPad, the only way to clear Discord’s cache is by offloading or deleting the app.

If you’re in an active Discord server, chances are that you’re seeing dozens, if not hundreds of messages a day. And that’s just one server — imagine all the pictures and links and memes that get picked up across them all.

Every version of the Discord app keeps a lot of this data saved in a cache folder, and if it gets too big your app and device can slow down. Luckily, you can clear the cache in just a few moments.

Note: Clearing Discord’s cache might also log you out of your account.

How to clear Discord’s cache on a PC

On a Windows PC, you’ll need to find Discord’s “appdata” location. This is where Windows keeps a lot of the basic code and resources that Discord needs to run — and it’s also where the cache lives.

Be sure to close Discord before doing this.

1. Close Discord, then open the search menu on your PC and type in %appdata%. When the folder appears in your results, open it.

This is the easiest way to find the folder.

2. You’ll see a list of different apps. Open the discord folder.

Quick tip: If you instead see three folders called Local, LocalLow, and Roaming, select Roaming, and then discord.

3. In this folder, you’ll need to find and delete three folders: Cache, Code Cache, and GPUCache. You can do this by right-clicking on them and selecting Delete, pressing Delete on your keyboard, or by dragging them to the Recycle Bin.

Don’t worry about breaking Discord — the next time you open it, it’ll create these three folders again, but without anything in them.

Delete these three folders.

In macOS, most apps keep their important data inside of a big repository called “Application Support.” This is where you’ll find Discord’s cache too.

2. Click Go at the top of the screen, and then select Go to Folder… at the bottom of the drop-down menu that appears.

3. Type ~/Library/Application Support/discord and press Return on your keyboard.

Head to Discord’s Application Support folder.
