- Now go under the connect tab and find “SERVERS”. Click it

- Underneath those you can even add more like /j #freenode or /j #C++ . (what ever guys your looking for.) However, remember #C++ is a channel that requires members to be “registered”. AKA you Identified yourself. If you don’t do that. it takes you to a seperate channel named ##c++. you dont want that.
