Anytime you type using the touch keyboard, you’ll hear a distinct click sound as part of the feedback mechanism. Although useful, the keyboard click sound can quickly become annoying in quiet places or if you use it often. Thankfully, you can turn off the keyboard sound quite easily. Here’s how.
The steps shown below will work on Windows 11, 10, 8.1, and 7.
Turn Off Touch Keyboard Click Sound
First of all, open the touch keyboard by pressing the Windows key + Ctrl + O. If that doesn’t work, open Settings (Windows key + I), navigate to Accessibility > Keyboard, and flip the On-Screen Keyboard toggle to On.
Once the touch keyboard opens, click on the Options button on it. This will open the touch keyboard options.
Locate and uncheck the Use click sound checkbox at the top of this window. Once you’ve done that, click OK to save your changes. You can close the touch keyboard if you are not using it right now.
And there you have it! You’ve successfully muted the touch keyboard sound.
(Optional) From the touch keyboard Options window, you can also disable text prediction, enable numeric keypad, and change how you type. For example, if you want to show the num pad, simply tick the Turn on numeric keyboard checkbox.
Alternative Method Using Registry
Another method to turn off typing sounds when using the touch keyboard is by modifying the registry. While modifying the registry is not hard, it is a risky business. Any incorrect changes can stop your system from booting. So, backup the registry and follow the below steps.
Press the Windows key + R, type regedit, and click OK. In the registry window, navigate to the following path.
Select the ClickSound value and then click on Edit > Modify. Type 0 in the Value Data field and click OK.
Close the registry window and restart your computer.
That’s all! Follow any one of the two methods shown above and the touch keyboard click sound will be turned off.
