Every time I close a tab in Chrome, it makes a click sound. How do I turn off that sound?
I reported that issue back in Oct 2010. The problem doesn't appear on all clients and the reason is still unclear.
Common attempts at solving the issue include simply turning off the sound in Windows. But I would prefer to solve the problem at the source.
Why is Chrome even triggering that sound to be played? And why is it delayed? The problem would be far less annoying if the sound could easily be related to the action taken.
- Installing the Chrome Toolbox and muting all tabs has no effect on this issue.
- When switching to a different Chrome user profile, the new user profile does exhibit the same issue.
- Only Adblock is installed.
This didn't happen until recently. I don't know whether it's Chrome or the OS, but a clicking sound appears when a tab is closed nonetheless.
