How to Get Rid of the Keyboard Sounds on a Laptop

by Nina Nixon

When ToggleKeys on a laptop are activated, a sound emits when either the CAPS LOCK, SCROLL LOCK or NUM LOCK key is touched. This helps prevent you from having to retype letters and words entered in error due to accidentally pressing those locked keys. On the other hand, the sound can be annoying. Especially, if you most always catch yourself shortly after inadvertently hitting one of those keys. Here is an easy way to change this accessibility option to better suit your keyboarding needs.

1

Click "Start" then click "Control Panel."

2

Click "Accessibility Options", then go to the "Keyboard" tab and remove the check beside "Use ToggleKeys."

3

Click "Apply" and then click "OK."
