    Windows 10 (Upgraded from Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit)

    Can I mute system notification sounds when headphones are plugged in?

    This may possibly sound like a stupid question but can I mute the system notification sounds when I have headphones plugged in?

    Last night I was happily watching a video with headphones when an e-mail came in; Windows blared a load BING at me and I jumped out of my skin!

    Thanks all

    You can turn down system sounds. Right click on volume icon, open volume mixer and either mute or lower system sounds.
