How do you disable the Windows Vista startup sound?
I have a Windows 7 laptop here that plays a startup sound time it starts up. I know I can disable that noise now that I'm logged on, but how could I have prevented it WHILE logging on?
I remember that there was one of the function keys (F8?) that would allow you to boot into safe mode, but is there a key that will stop the startup sound?
Imagine, for example, having your laptop in the library when you know the volume is all the way up - how could you log into your computer without disturbing everyone else?
