This came up twice in the past week at work so I decided to post it. Here’s a few ways to disable the annoying beep in Windows. Works especially well to hush Terminal Services Beeping. I ran this on the clients but it may work for the server as well.
|1.||local machine: sc stop beep && sc config beep start= disabled|
|2.||remote machine: sc \remoteMachine stop beep && sc \remoteMachine config beep start= disabled|
|3.||requires reboot: Device Manager -> View -> Show Hidden Devices -> Non Plug and Play -> Beep -> Disable|
|4.||requires reboot: net stop beep|
|5.||use TweakUI: General > Settings -> Uncheck the Beep on Errors|
