How to mute the clicking sound on my site?

Post by Q2hyaX » Wed, 03 Mar 2004 02:01:09

I have used HTML to enable mouseover to a target frame. But the clicking sound still occurs at each event, which gets annoying. Is there a way to disable the clicking sound for certain events such as this?

Something that has driven me nuts for a long time too...

Try this:
Navigate to Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click on Sounds. Scroll down to the Windows Explorer section. Select the "Start Navigation" item, and change the sound to none. Problem solved.

hth.

Forget it. It's a Control Panel setting, and it's by the user's preference.
You can turn it off for yourself in Control Panel's Sounds tool. But it has
nothing whatsoever to do with your web pages.

Kevin's answer still stands. It's an individual browser issue.

clicking sound only where I have enabled images to flash in the target frame
on mouseover over an index image and flash out during mousout. I'm okay
with the clicking sound where a user has to click on a hyperlink.

Unfortunately, the "clicking" is an OS setting, and many people don't have
it set, so many people wouldn't have any idea what you are referring to.

Sure helps you figure out when a site is using "Double Click" when it's
turned on though.
Instead of one click you get click-click.

are you sure there's no css @sound or something? I'd have thought it'd be
like the image bar/ resize which can be controlled by css.
