OS: Windows 7 64-bit Problem:
whenever I right-click to copy something (e.g., in Word or Excel), the computer makes a loud ringing "DING" sound, like the sound that accompanies the "idea lightbulb" going off over someone's head in a cartoon.
The sound is coming over the outboard stereo speakers, NOT the motherboard "beep" sound from inside the computer case. This "windows ding" noise is clearly audible over whatever else might be playing through the speakers (like music).
I'm copying and pasting hundreds of items to verify data, and the DINGING sound is more than a little aggravating. How can I turn this feature OFF? Already tried:
Control panel > Sound > Sounds Tab > highlight "default beep" > select "none" for sound from drop-down list > click "Apply"
This may have done something (or not?), but it did NOT stop the windows "DING" from sounding through the speakers every time I cut or copy something.
Thank you for any assistance,
