Three icons will appear next to your profile icon. A microphone, headphones, and a gear icon are included. To access your user settings, click the gear symbol. The settings will open after you click the gear icon. You can find several options on the left sidebar. “My Account,” “User Profile,” “Privacy and Security,” and other options are available.

Click the Unlock with Nitro button if you don’t have Discord Nitro.

You must choose a subscription after clicking the “Unlock with Nitro” button. Select the “Monthly” subscription if you only use Discord Nitro for a short period. If you want Discord Nitro for a year, choose the “Annual” membership option. Then you must enter the details for your credit or debit card. You can also use PayPal to make a payment.

You’ll see a preview of your banner on the right side of the page when you’ve uploaded it. You must save your edits after you have uploaded a banner. Your profile banner will not appear if you do not do so. There are a handful of buttons at the bottom of the page, including “Reset” and “Save Changes.”
