3 Methods To Disable Keyboard Sounds On Windows 10

Summary: Just like typing on a phone, many users like to set the keyboard sound produced when they type something. Especially, using them gives you a more tactile experience when typing on a touch screen or other device. However, this may not be appropriate for serious, quiet situations, which require the user to turn off the keyboard sound. In this article, we will recommend the methods to disable keyboard sounds on Windows 10.

Microsoft already offers physical feedback on some devices or haptic feedback on others. Both give you a more tactile sensation when typing on a touch screen or some other device. While both are great, nothing beats the clicky typing sound of a keyboard.

On-Screen Keyboard (OSK) is an accessibility feature on Windows 10. The sounds of key clicks give you some haptic feedback. But it can get annoying if you are a good-touch typist or want to type in silence. If you also are annoyed with the keyboard sounds, follow the steps below to switch off the keyboard sounds.

Edit Windows Registry to Disable Keyboard Sounds

You can also turn off the keyboard sound by using the Windows Registry, which is an advanced administrative level tool designed for the administrators to customize the processes of their operating system.

However, since Registry is an administrative-level tool we highly recommend you create a backup before proceeding with the steps mentioned below. This will help you restore the state of Registry Editor before you made the changes listed in this method in case anything goes wrong during the process.

  1. Press the Win + R keys together to open a Run dialog and type in regedit and hit Enter.
  2. Once you are inside the Registry Editor, navigate to the location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7
  3. Right-click the blank in the right pane and select New > DWORD (32-Bit) Value.registry editor-tabletip
  4. Rename this value as EnableKeyAudioFeedback.
  5. Double-click on EnableKeyAudioFeedback and change Value data to 0.registry editor-tabletip-EnableKeyAudioFeedback
  6. Hit OK and close the Registry Editor.
  7. Finally, restart your PC and you should not hear the keyboard sounds when using it to type something.


That’s it for the three methods to disable the On-Screen keyboard or Touch keyboard sounds, Windows 10 users can choose one of them to disable keyboard sounds. Meanwhile, if you want to enable the keyboard sounds, just follow the methods mentioned and make the opposite change.
