That new black title bar is so agonizing, that make me feel like if I had less space to see the messages in servers, I would like to back to the previous version!

In reality, with the title bar you have slightly more room for messages, but lose some of the height in the channel, server and member lists.
I would love to have a normal Windows window.
I would love if Adobe could do that too.
Use Normal Windows Window??????
I disagree strongly. Discord is so much less prone to random dragging and movement now. It also makes it more easy to move Discord by throwing your cursor to the top of the screen. If this is removed a toggle is vital, or perhaps this should only be disabled for Linux/Mac OSX users.
If you are saying that you can't find what you want in the dark screen, then I AM ENTIRELY WITH YOU!! Or am I the only one who can't see??????????????
The biggest problem I have with the black bar is that I was able to move the Discord window by clicking anywhere on it, but now the only way to do it is to get your mouse over to the tiny black bar and then click that to move it. Much more annoying than before for sure.
I agree. The old UI were much better and looks more modern. The darker stripe titlebar feels like those older desktop programs that always have seperate visible titlebar. The old UI design even sports larger window buttons for Maximize/Restore, Minimize and Close, and the design were closer to the look of Windows 10 standard window titlebar.
The new Discord design on Windows just doesn't look as good and modern as it was.
The Discord logo doesn't even allow dragging which makes it confusing for the user.

Many of us feel the new title bar does not belong in Discord. The colours don't blend together well, and it's an OCD nightmare. The only good part about it is the logo.
Thus, I have created two very simple design concepts in order to remedy this. It includes the logo, and a return of the much loved control buttons in the upper right-hand corner.
Obviously the buttons and such aren't quite to scale as I had to rip them from a Google image and it isn't quite lined up correctly, but I hope you all get the gist of what I am trying to achieve here.
It would be great if the Discord devs see this, and consider this idea.
Thank you for your eye pixels!
Yeah not to mention the new black header bar does not even work correctly for grabbing the window if your point is not at the same level as the Discord logo in there it does not work if your slightly above or below which is annoying as hell i often move mouse to very top of screen to grab a window to move it chrome has the same problem with it's tabs getting in the way of me moving mouse to very top it drives me barmy...
There is a pretty easy way to do this using a css injector. If you are interested I can explain it to you. I wish discord had implemented a themeing module for the client, but doing it yourself is technically against TOS
Discord UI design is a mess. Even more than ten olds mIRC seems much superior than that.
The new Windows desktop app window title bar is trash. The old UI when the windows buttons are in right corner after help button was much better.
Who is the kid in-charge of your UI development? Shit, no quality at all...
Just bring back the previous UI and forget about anymore dumb memes that you might have!
It is both ugly, and annoying since i can't drag the screen the way i used to. Would be great since this is just a change for the worse
I could see toggling. This is a nice option for Windows users for those who remember the annoying minimizing / maximizing issues before.
Really bothers me too.
Please remove the new menu bar with the discord logo and minimaze, maximize, close buttons that is now separated from the main window and put the icons back near the help button.
This causes the new interface on the desktop app to look much much worse. It looked much better before this change.

Seconding the toggle, I still glance at my Discord window and think there's another window behind it, when it's really just the stupid black menu bar. To each their own, but the option would be nice.
I'd like it to be an option, I actually like the black bar.
The black title bar is a permanent feature. There will be no option for choosing to have the title bar or not. Its there to fix bugs that were occurring before it was implemented.
