Disable Windows System Beeps

February 23, 2009

Since I recently started using BitVise as my SSH client on Windows machines I became quickly irritated by the beeping every time I punched in an invalid key combination. Since I had all my Windows sounds muted I figured it must be coming from command prompt (which is what BitVise uses). After a few minutes of digging around I managed to find the solution.

Open up your command prompt and enter:

net stop beep

And that’s all there is to it!

  1. I had the same issue. The fix works on windows 10 as long as you run command prompt as administrator otherwise you’ll get a permission error whether your admin or not. For me it said it failed, however the beeping has stopped! 😀 Thanks I could only use Bitvise SSH with all sounds muted.
