I need to disable the sound that gets emitted on Windows 7 when a user logs off. I presume it should be as easy as finding the sound file that gets played and renaming it while logged in with administrator privileges.

Can someone please tell me how I can accomplish this?

I need to disable the sound that gets emitted on Windows 7 when a user logs off

The default sound filename for Windows Logoff is C:\Windows\Media\Windows Logoff Sound.wav

To disable the Windows Logoff Sound:

  1. "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Sound"

  2. Select "Sounds" tab

  3. Scroll the "Program Events" list and select "Windows Logoff"

  4. Change "Sounds" to "(None)" and press "OK"

    enter image description here

Note:

  • This is a per user configuration. To change the sound for all users replace C:\Windows\Media\Windows Logoff Sound.wav with a silent .wav file with the same name.

  • A quick alternative way(at least on a Windows 7) to open the "Sound" Windows is by right clicking the desktop > Personalize > Sounds. – Lucky Oct 23 '15 at 7:07
