If you are an IT administrator, you may want to know how to disable Windows system sounds permanently, but not application sound. This is a common problem faced by users in corporate environments where it is important to maintain a professional and distraction-free work environment.
At the most basic level, you can turn off all system sounds in Windows by going to the Control Panel, selecting Sounds and Audio Devices, and then clicking on the Sounds tab. On this tab, you can set all system sounds to “None”, which will turn off all system sounds. However, this will also turn off the application sound, which is not what you want.
To turn off system sounds but not application sound, you will need to go to the Advanced tab in the Sounds and Audio Devices window. This tab contains several options that allow you to control the sound options for the system and for each application.
If you click on the “System Sounds” option, you can select the “No sounds” option from the list of available sounds. This will turn off all system sounds, but will not affect any application sound.
If you want to turn off system sounds for a specific application, you can click on the “Applications” option and then select the application from the list. Once you have selected the application, you can then select the “No sounds” option from the list of available sounds.
You can also turn off the system sounds for all applications by going to the “Advanced” tab and selecting the “Global Settings” option. From here, you can select the “No sounds” option to turn off all system sounds.
These steps should allow you to turn off system sounds permanently, but not application sound. Keep in mind that this will only work if all applications are set to use the same sound options. Otherwise, you may need to manually set each application’s sound options.
