Discord is a pretty stable application that does well without any sort of errors or known bugs. So, optimally you are not going to face any issues with the application and get a pretty smooth overall experience with the application. However, if your Discord app is crashing on startup, that means there is certainly something wrong, and here is how you can have it fixed without going to too many troubles.
Discord Crashing On Startup
1) Clear background applications
One of the main reasons that can cause your Discord app to crash at the startup is that there might be too many background applications running on your device and they can cause you to have problems like this. So, you need to make sure that you have enough hardware resources spared for your Discord application to be launched properly without getting any sort of an error on it.
So, once you have cleared out all the applications that might be running in the background, try to launch the Discord application again and it will work without causing any sorts of troubles for you and will definitely not crash. This would work most of the time and you will be able to get rid of the problem with the Discord application.
2) Restart the Device
You might need to restart the device to clear out these errors and bugs if you are unable to make it work by only clearing out the applications that you might have running in the background. A simple power cycle will ensure that you are getting the right reboot on your hardware and software resources and any bugs that might be causing you to have these issues will most likely be cleared out and you will be able to ensure a smooth launching experience on the Discord app after you have restarted your device.
3) Update the application
You might be running an outdated version of the application and that is a huge problem as well. So, what you will need to do here is check for any updates and make sure that you have the latest version of the Discord application installed. There are many bugs and errors that can cause you to have such issues and Discord developers keep updating their application to ensure a smooth experience for their users. It would be better if you turn the auto-updates on to ensure that the app is being updated automatically whenever there is some update required on the application.
4) Reinstall the application
You will also need to reinstall the application as there might be some issues with the installation process and you will need to make sure that the application is installed perfectly on your PC. Clear all the app data, uninstall the application, and then restart your device once.
After the device is restarted, you will need to download the latest version of the Discord application from the store and that will fix any issues that you might be facing with your launch for the discord application. The app will stop crashing on startup for sure after this.
