You must have observed that whenever you click a link or you try to open a page then a sound occurs in the browser. This is due to the navigation sound which is enabled into your Operating System. Sometimes it might seem uncomfortable to you or if you are working late night and you do not want to trouble anyone with this sound on your system, then you can disable this sound without the help of any freeware. In this post we will discuss that how can you so this for your system.
Before going further let me tell you that, this tutorial will work for IE 8 and previous version. Just follow the steps mentioned below and then you will be able to switch off the sound as per your convenience.
- Go to the Control Panel and then click the sound option as described in the snapshot below.
- Firstly select the Sounds in the tab and then select the ‘Sound Navigation; as highlighted in the snapshot below.
- Then uncheck the checked box at the bottom of the application window, this has also been highlighted in the snapshot shown above.
- After you disable that option and then press the ‘OK’, you will not listen that noise again while clicking any of the links on any web page.
So you can get rid of that sound by the tutorial mentioned above but then keep in mind that if you have got the latest IE 9 then this trick will not work for it. If you want this sound again in future then just repeat the same steps which have been discussed above and then just check the unchecked box mentioned in the third or the last step of the tutorial, this will help you to get back that sound for navigation.
