How to Remove a Stuck Direct Message Notification in Discord

Gabbie Odonkor

If you’re experiencing a stuck direct message notification in Discord, don’t worry – it’s a common issue that can be resolved in just a few steps. Here’s how to get rid of that pesky notification:

Step 1: Open your DMs The first step is to open your direct messages in Discord. Look for the conversation with the notification that won’t go away.

Step 2: Click the “Nitro” tab If you see a “Nitro” tab just below the “Friends” tab, click it. This is the most likely cause of the stuck notification, as Discord may be promoting its premium Nitro subscription service. By clicking the tab, you acknowledge the promotion and the notification should go away.

Step 3: Consider taking advantage of a Nitro promotion If you see a Nitro promotion in your DMs, consider taking advantage of it. Discord offers a free trial of Nitro, and you may find the premium features worth paying for. If you decide it’s not for you, be sure to cancel your subscription before the trial period ends.

Step 4: Update Discord If clicking the Nitro tab doesn’t fix the stuck notification and you’re certain you’ve read all of your DMs, try updating Discord. Sometimes, a software update can solve the issue.

Step 5: Clear Discord’s cache files If updating Discord doesn’t work, try clearing the app’s cache files. This can solve many problems, including a stuck notification. Here’s how to clear Discord’s cache:

  1. Close Discord completely.
  2. Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key + R.
  3. Type %appdata% and press Enter.
  4. Find the Discord folder and delete it.
  5. Restart Discord and log in again.

That’s it! By following these steps, you should be able to get rid of any stuck direct message notifications in Discord. If you’re still having issues, you may want to contact Discord support for further assistance.
