By default, keyboard keys can make noisy sounds.

Keys commonly cause Windows to produce various system sounds, especially on laptop computers, and these sounds can be annoying. Although it's possible to simply disable sound altogether, that prevents you from hearing the sounds from other applications. Thus, it becomes necessary to silence keys from activating any sound in Windows, while allowing applications to produce their normal sounds. Windows allows us to do this quickly and efficiently with no third-party software.

Open the Control Panel. Accessing it may be slightly different based on which version of Windows you are currently using on your Toshiba laptop. Left-click on the Start menu in the bottom left corner of your screen, and then click on the Control Panel button.

Open the Sound window. Find the Sound icon in the Control Panel and double-click on it. At the top of the window, left-click on the "Sounds" tab.

Change the sound scheme. The sound scheme is basically the configuration of Windows' basic sounds. This includes Windows notifications, logging off and on, and any kind of error message that appears. Click on the drop-down menu on the left side of the window and left click on the "No Sounds" option.

Save and restart your computer. Left click on the "Apply" button in the bottom right corner of the window to save the changed settings. This may take a few seconds. Finally, restart your computer.
