To enable or disable system sounds in Windows 10, you must first open the Sound settings from the Settings app. To do this, go to Start > Settings > System > Sound.
Once in the Sound settings page, select the Sounds tab on the left side. At the top right of the window, you will find a “Playback” drop-down menu. Select the sound device that you want to change the settings for. This can either be your speakers or headphones.
The “Sounds” tab has a list of events for which you can set a sound. This includes a sound when an application opens, when an error occurs, or when a notification is received. To change the sound for any of these events, simply click on the drop-down menu associated with that event and select the desired sound. Note that some events may not have a sound associated with them by default. In this case, select the “(None)” option.
At the bottom of the window, there is a checkbox to enable or disable all system sounds. If you want to completely disable all system sounds, make sure that this checkbox is unchecked and no audio will be played when any of the above-mentioned events occur.
If you want to keep some system sounds, but not all of them, you can also use the “Other Sound Options” button at the bottom of the window. Clicking on this button will open another window where you can customize different sound options, such as the volume level, balance, and reverberation.
Now that you have configured the sound settings for system events, click the “Apply” button to save your changes. You should now be able to hear (or not hear) the sounds you selected for each of the events.
