How can I start Windows without sound?

The Windows factory default setting is to give a beep on startup. Not everyone likes this, and it can be a nuisance if, for example, it sounds in the evening when everyone else in the family is asleep. Windows can be silenced, of course, and we’ll show you two ways to do it.

Professionals – provided they are using Windows Pro, they can use Group Policy to disable the startup sound. The significant advantage of this method is that the sound setting option will no longer be active in the standard settings so that others cannot change it later. Launch the Local Group Policy Editor and select Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Logon from the left panel.

In the right panel, locate the entry Turn off the system startup beep, and double-click on it. In the pop-up window, in the top left corner, select Enabled and press OK.

If the Local Group Policy Editor is not available, right-click on the Speaker icon in the taskbar, select Sounds, and uncheck the Play Startup Sound Alert box. When you are ready, click OK!
