8 simple ways to activate Audio while Discord Screen Sharing

Lately it has been noticed that many Discord users have been complaining of several issues with the application, so I joined a few Discord forums and threads and learned that most of the users are complaining about audio issues while screen-sharing in Discord.  

I did some research and found out that these audio issues in Discord can be solved very easily and you can do it as well. So here are 8 quick and easy ways in which you can solve the issue.

Solution 1: Restart your computer

There may be some unknown program running in the background of your PC which is not allowing audio to connect on Discord. Restart your computer to shut all unnecessary programs and then launch Discord to fix the error. 

If the problem still persists after restarting your computer then try the next method to solve it

Solution 3: Update your audio driver

An outdated or missing audio driver is one of the most likely reasons why Discord audio does not work during screen sharing. Check if your device driver is up to date and if you update it if any update is available.  

Solution 4: Clear Discord Roaming data

Discord will fail to load if the temporary Discord files and account settings are improper. Clearing your Discord Roaming data might help solve your issue. Here is how you can do so:

Step 1) Exit the Discord application.

Step 2) Press the Windows logo key, then type %appdata% and press Enter.

Relaunch it a few times and if you still do not hear audio during screen sharing then try the next method to solve the issue.

Solution 5: Temporarily disable your antivirus 

The antivirus software on your PC blocks many apps due to which it may not be giving your device audio permission while running Discord. This can be a rare possibility but nevertheless, it’s better to know for certain. Disable your antivirus software temporarily and check if Discord Screen Share audio starts working.

If you need guidance as to how to disable your antivirus software contact your antivirus vendor. Do not visit any unknown apps, websites, or open any spam mails while your antivirus is disabled as your device is at a risk of getting attacked by malware and viruses. 

If the issue is solved after disabling your antivirus then contact your Antivirus vendor and ask for further assistance or switch to another antivirus system.

Solution 6: Reset the voice settings on Discord

IF you have made some improper changes to your voice settings then it could be the cause for no audio while screen sharing on Discord. Resetting the voice settings to default should solve the issue in such a case. Here’s how you can do so:

Step 1) Open Discord, then select the Settings icon.
