    No Sounds, still have sounds.


    Hi, I am new here. Hello.
    I upgraded to W10 from W764 and have always been able to choose No Sounds in Settings and have "no sounds". However, not I choose No Sounds and I either get "no sounds (modified) or I can change that to No Sounds but I STILL have sounds.
    I do audio recording and do not want some unexpected sound popping up. For instance, I have a mouse pad on this laptop. If I double click the upper left it turns the mouse pad off. I cannot get rid of the sound Windows 10 makes when I turn it off or back on and I sometimes do this accidentally.
    It there a way to at least temporarily turn off all system sounds and still have the sound card working? I use a couple of external USB soundcards.
    This has not been a problem for me, I have a DAW, a desktop set up for recording but I also have my DAW software on my laptop. This is one of the things that is making me hesitate to move my DAW from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
    Thanks and sorry if I put this in the wrong forum.

    Hi, might help if you posted a screenshot as to how exactly you tried to disable sounds.
    I assume via the control panel, sound dialogue.

    Have you tried rt clicking on the speaker icon in the tray, open volume mixer, then look for System Sounds; click the loud speaker below that to disable it?

    No.. I can turn all my sound OFF, but I need sound just not notification or system sounds. I can easily just turn my speakers or headphones off. I just don't want some sound coming up while I am working with audio.
    I've used control panel settings sound sounds None and None (modified). I've used regedit to go to current user and entered the value as no in both fields related to sounds... I STILL get a little tune when I turn my touchpad (mousepad on laptop) off/on. Sometimes I double click the area of the pad that does this by mistake.
    I never had a problem until Windows 10, on W7, when I selected "none" under sounds, when I opened the sound heading by double clicking the volume icon. Now, like I said, I have none and none (modified) which to me makes no sense.. shouldn't none be none.. but neither is none.
    I hope this helps... I am not trying to turn my sound off, I am trying to turn all "sounds" off but still have access to recording and playback via whatever soundcard I choose to use.
    It may turn out to not be a problem but I think what bothers me is that it is like a symptom of an unknown problem and since I do audio production, that troubles me.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Hi jbow, maybe you misunderstood- what I was suggesting should ONLY disable system sounds. That is, mute ONLY the speaker icon associated with system sounds.

    Please confirm you have tried that with a screenshot to be sure. Thanks.

    Right-click on the volume icon and select Sounds. Have a careful look at Program Events list and find the ones associated with the mouse. Modify them so that no sound is played for these events.
