If you want to turn off Windows sounds using the Sounds and Audio Devices applet that you can find within the Control Panel, you’ve got to go through a longer way to do it. I say longer because here I compare the standard way with a utility that does it much simpler, easier and faster. Using the standard way is fine if you intend to turn off Windows sounds permanently or to disable some of the Windows sounds you prefer to hear no more, but what if you want to disable the sounds temporarily during, let’s say, you watching a movie?
SoundOff disables the Windows sounds whenever you right click the icon on the tray and select the “Turn Sounds Off” option. Additionally, this one lets you to rename and delete the sound schemes you add and prevent other programs to automatically change your current Windows sound schemes.
Another way to turn off Windows sounds is to right-click the icon and select “Change Scheme” followed by clicking “No Sounds“. This means you can also change your Windows sound scheme easily without having to “explore” the Control Panel to search for the applet.
