Using instant messaging social platforms such as Discord is a good way to connect with friends and family. The platform is also useful for chatting with people from different countries and even creating communities around common interests. However, it is not always easy to navigate the platform and many users do not know how to do certain things. One of these things is how to go to the beginning of a discord chat. This article will help explain how to do this in three simple ways.

One method is to press and hold the Shift key while pressing the Enter button. Doing this will split your message into multiple lines instead of sending it all at once. You can do this on a computer or smartphone. Another method is to use the backtick symbol. This is found below the Escape key on computers and in the special symbols section of most mobile devices. It is important to note that this will only work if you are typing a message and not simply pressing Enter.

If you are looking to find the very first message in a particular chat, it is best to use one of the search filters available. For example, you can try the in: channel filter to view messages in order by oldest to newest. Once you find the earliest message, you can then click on it to be taken to its placement in the chat.

The same process can be followed for checking a conversation thread on a mobile device. The only difference is that it takes a bit longer to create a thread on the mobile app. In addition, you will need to choose a username and search filter before starting the conversation. This will ensure that your search results are filtered only by the relevant conversation.
