  1. Long press on a message.

  2. Select Star message in the menu that appears.

Starred messages have a filled in star () to their right. You can unstar a message using the same instructions used to star it.

Access your starred messages

You can access your starred messages by clicking Starred messages in the left sidebar, or by searching for is:starred.

By default, Zulip displays the number of starred messages in the left sidebar; this allows you to use them as an inbox of messages you'd like to come back to. If you are using starred messages for something else and would prefer not to see the count in your left sidebar, you can disable that feature.

  1. Click on the gear () icon in the upper right corner of the web or desktop app.

  2. Select Personal settings.

  3. On the left, click Display settings.

  4. Under Display settings, toggle Show counts for starred messages.
