A most irritating problem is that Discord doesn’t open in Windows. Here are some solutions to fix this problem.
Open task manager on Windows 10. you'll press the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + Esc to quickly open it.
Click the Process tab, and search Discord application to click it. After that click the End Task button at the right-bottom to kill the background Discord process.
Then you'll restart Discord to ascertain if it can open and work well.
Alternatively, you can also kill the background Discord process by using the Command Prompt.
Press Windows key + R.
Type cmd then click OK.
From the cmd window that seems type taskkill /F /IM discord.exe
After the method finishes, relaunch Discord.
Now everything should work fine. Additionally, you'll do an equivalent thing by using Task Manager: press Ctrl + Alt + Del > select Task Manager > in Task Manager find Discord > click thereon > click End Task > relaunch Discord.
Close Discord using the answer above.
Press Windows key + R and sort %appdata%. Then hit Enter.
From the new window that shows, search the Discord folder and delete it.
Now, you'll repeat the method to clear the LocalAppData by typing %localappdata% rather than %appdata% at step 2.
In many instances, Discord can’t open in Windows 10 due to VPNs. So, if you're employing a proxy or a VPN, this might be the case of your app not opening. To disable proxy, follow the steps:
In the Windows search box type instrument panel and hit Enter.
Click on Network and Internet > Internet Options.
An Internet Properties window should appear. Click on the Connections tab
Within the Local Area Network (LAN) settings section, tap on LAN Settings.
Inside Proxy server section, untick Use a proxy server for your LAN
Click OK, then Apply.
Now the matter should be gone.
Make sure your system is up-to-date.
Set the Windows Date and Time to Automatic. This worked in some cases. Right-click on the date and time within the lower-right of your screen > Adjust date/time > Set time automatically.
Open the online version of Discord. A few users reported that using the online version resets the Discord session on your Windows 10 app. Start Discord on your PC> if the app can’t open, follow the online version and login together with your credentials, and then, the Windows 10 Discord app should work properly.
As a final resort, uninstall and reinstall Discord.
Hope that one of the solutions provided helped you to fix Discord doesn’t open in Windows 10.
