Vista Startup Sounds

Vista Startup Sounds

So, tell me, are you a new Windows Vista user? Or maybe you’ve been using it for awhile now. Either way, do you like the way the Vista operating system sounds when you boot up your computer. You know, it plays that little song for you. All the Windows operating systems do it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we have to like it, right? Well, if you’re one that doesn’t care for the whole intro song type of thing, there is a way you can shut it off. Want to know how? Then read on!

Now, before I go any further, I want you all to know that you’re very lucky when it comes to this kind of thing, because originally, there was no way to turn this sound off in earlier versions of Windows. But, now with Vista, there is, so we might as well take advantage of it, don’t you think?! Alright, to turn off the startup sounds that Vista makes, click on your Start button and in the search box below it, type in the word “sound” to create a search query for it.

When your results come up, find the one that simply says “Sound” and click on it. Next, choose the Sounds tab. From there, look to the bottom of the box and uncheck the option that says “Play Windows Startup Sound.” When you’re finished, click Apply and then OK. That’s all there is to it! Once you do this, you won’t have to hear all those “sometimes annoying” sounds that play while your operating system is starting up. How great is that? Give it a try today!
