iefirefox How to Stop Internet Explorers Annoying Clicking Sound

This is one of those things which I cannot believe I tolerated in the past – The annoying clicking sounds IE makes every single time you click on a link.  Here’s how you turn it off.

  1. From the Start pop-up menu on your desktop, select your computer’s Control Panel.
  2. From this list, pick Sounds and Audio Devices (for Windows XP) or Sounds and Multimedia Properties (for Windows 2000). 
  3. From the tabs across the top, pick Sounds.
  4. Scroll down and you’ll find a category called Windows Explorer. The last item under this heading is Start Navigation. Click this to highlight it.
  5. In the box just below this, called Sounds, open the pop-up menu and scroll to the top to choose (None).
  6. Click the OK button to close the dialog window – and you’re done!
