Turning Off System Beeps

Tip Difficulty Level: Advanced

Although we don't recommend this tip very much as having the warning beep etc can help you find out when problems happen, some people do get annoyed by it - We have a simple registry editing way of turning them off.

How This Tip Works

  • Load Regedit.
  • Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
  • On the left hand side of the screen find Beep on the list.
  • Right click on it and select Modify
  • Change the value equal to no
  • Reboot your computer
  • The beeps will then vanish - if you wish them to return change the equal value back to yes.
