Windows will usually emit a sound to notify users of the occurrence of new events on their computer. But if you'd like to turn this feature off, here's a simple trick on how to mute system sounds in Windows 10

You can either mute the sounds for specific program events (notifications, critical battery alert, task completion, calendar event…) or permanently mute all system sounds on your computer.
Go to the Control Panel
and open Sound
. Select the Sounds
tab and click on the desired event (e.g. Notifications
) in Programs events
. Next, click on the Sounds
dropdown menu and select None
Click on Apply
to disable the sounds for the selected event.
