Many thanx for the effort but.......the sound I refer to is a loud "blooping" sound not a mere ticking sound. To be sure, I followed you advice but no joy.Byteman said:Hi, You can set the sound for the Start Navigation sound byte to "None". Or, any other sound in the list but that would still be irritating....so.....
Open the system Control Panel and click on "Sounds and Multimedia".
In the Sounds tab, look under the Windows Explorer section and click on "Start Navigation". Under Name:, you will usually see start.wav which is the clicking sound. Replace the text "start.wav" with "(None)" and hit OK. You find the "None" way up at the beginning of the big list when you click the little black drop down arrow next to the sound line....click on "None" and it will load into the line where Start.wav was....click OK and you are done.
