How do I disable sounds?

New Contributor

Greetings, I do not want any sounds from Excel. How do I turn them all off?

@Audre575 Perhaps you have "Provide feedback with sound" enabled. Switch it off. In my version it's located under Options, Accessibility. Other version may refer to it as "Ease of access".





Select File > Options.

Select Ease of Access or Accessibility in the navigation pane on the left.

Clear the check box Provide feedback with sound.

Click OK.

Thanks for your help. I did what you said and I still have sounds when I delete an item in Outlook or do something in Excel. So annoying. I have unclicked everything that I can find where there is a sound notification. What's next? Thanks for your help. Audre

























In the Sounds tab of the Sound control panel in Windows, scroll down until you see the Exclamation sound. Set it to None.
