Clicking driving you crazy?

The clicking sound that Windows plays when you click on a link in Internet Explorer or open a folder in Windows Explorer can drive you insane.  Here’s how to kill that 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 nuke 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

Peace and quite is now restored.  I, however think that whoever decided that opening a link, or a folder needed it’s own sound should be beaten with a bag full of “Made for Windows” stickers.
