Disabling the Clicking Sound in Internet Explorer

Some people get really irritated with the constant clicking noise that Internet Explorer makes when navigating through web pages by clicking links. If you want to turn this clicking noise off, it’s pretty easy to do.

  • Go to ‘Control Panel’
  • Double-click on the ‘Sounds and Audio Devices’ control panel
  • Click the Sounds tab.
  • Scroll down in the ‘Program events’ list until you find the ‘Windows Explorer’ section, then highlight ‘Start Navigation.’
  • Change the ‘Sounds’ drop down menu at the bottom of the dialog to ‘(None).’
  • Press the OK button when done.
