Every time I change the audio level via Windows 7 Professional x64's Task Bar's audio control to up or down, Windows does a ding sound, which is quite annoying.

How do you disable this?

This is connected to the Default Beep sound in Windows. To disable it you need to set the default beep sound to None.

To do this:

  1. Type sound into your Start menu and pick the Sound item from the search results.
  2. On the Sounds tab, select "Default Beep" in the list, and set it to None using the dropdown box below (Top of the list)

Warning - You will no longer get any other sound notifications for events that use the default beep.
