How Do I Get a Discord Server Icon?

If you’re a Discord server owner or administrator, you may want to customize your server by adding a unique server icon. A server icon not only adds a personal touch to your server but also helps make it easily recognizable among other servers. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of obtaining and setting a Discord server icon.


Before we dive into the steps, make sure you meet the following requirements:

  • Your own Discord server
  • An image file for your desired server icon
  • The image file must be in either JPEG or PNG format
  • The image dimensions should be square and at least 512×512 pixels for optimal quality

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

To begin, open Discord and navigate to your server. On the left-hand side of the screen, locate your server’s name and right-click on it.

A dropdown menu will appear. From this menu, select “Server Settings. “

Step 2: Choosing a Server Icon

In the settings menu, locate the “Overview” tab on the left-hand side and click on it. In this tab, you will find an option called “Server Icon.” Click on the “Change Icon” button right below it.


You need to have administrative privileges or be the owner of the Discord server to change its icon.

Step 3: Uploading Your Image

A pop-up window will appear allowing you to upload an image from your computer. Click on the “Upload” button and navigate to where your desired server icon image is located. Select the image file and click “Open” to proceed.

Discord will automatically resize the image to fit the required dimensions. However, it’s recommended to use an image that is already square and at least 512×512 pixels for the best results.

Step 4: Confirming Your Selection

Once you have uploaded the image, Discord will display a preview of your selected server icon. Take a moment to review it and make sure it looks as intended. If you are satisfied with your choice, click on the “Save Changes” button to finalize your selection.

Step 5: Enjoy Your New Server Icon

Congratulations! You have successfully set a new server icon for your Discord server. Your new server icon will now be visible to all members and visitors of your server.

Note: In case you want to change or remove the server icon in the future, simply repeat these steps and choose a different option or click on the “Remove” button in Step 3.


In this tutorial, we explored how you can obtain and set a Discord server icon for your own server. By following these simple steps, you can personalize your Discord experience and make your server stand out from the rest. Remember to choose an image that accurately represents your server’s theme or purpose, and enjoy customizing your Discord community!
