I need to know about customizing device sound files, is it possible to mute volume registry setting; I heard that sounds can be customized by adding a new resource DLL containing customized sounds, and then adding a registry entry to use these new sounds, but not sure about, editing the code, Please get me inputs on editing the codings. Thanks

Hi !

You can mute your sound from registry in two ways:

First you in the Start => Run… Type "services.msc" press Enter and it will appear a window with all Services. Select and double click Windows Audio and another window will open. In that new Windows Audio Property selects: Startup Type click and choose Disable and at Startup Type press Stop. In the last press Apply  => Ok.

From registry keys you can press Start => Run… and type "regedit" a window will appear and press Ctrl+F and search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ServicesAudioSrv.

"Beep"="no"

"ExtendedSounds"="no"

1) Go to Control Panel.

2) Click to Sounds and Audio Devices.

3) In new window opened, go to "Sounds" tab.
