Howto: Disable the clicking sound in Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer

by admin on January 29, 2009

The clicking sound that Windows plays when you click on a link in Internet Explorer or open a folder in Windows Explorer can get annoying. 

Here’s how to disable the sound in Windows XP:

  1. Click Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices
  2. Click the Sounds tab
  3. Scroll down the list under Program Events. Under the Windows Explorer section, highlight Start Navigation.
  4. Under the Sounds box, select (None) > OK, close Control Panel

Here’s how to disable the sound in Windows Vista:

  1. Click Start > Control Panel > Sound
  2. Click the Sounds tab
  3. Scroll down the list under Program. Under the Windows Explorer section, highlight Start Navigation.
  4. Under the Sounds box, select (None) > OK, close Control Panel

You should no longer hear the clicking noise when you select links in Internet Explorer or open directories in Windows Explorer.
