Disabling the beep

I thought I’d blogged about this before, but when talking about with Simon Sabin just now, I couldn’t find it.

Simon’s just blogged a couple of ways of stopping the beep from the command line. Here’s one using a User Interface.

Go to Device Manager, and make sure that “Show Hidden Devices” is checked in the View menu.

DeviceManager

Now you can find the Beep in the “Non-Plug and Play Drivers” section and edit its properties (setting it to Disabled).

  1. I can just picture it:

    Adam: “The red wire or the green wire?”
    System clock: “Tick, tick, tick…”
