Disable loud beep in Remote Desktop
Posted by onlydarksets on October 15, 2008
Ugh – what a stupid “feature”. I’m testing some AtomicParsley settings in Remote Desktop, and every time it fails, a ridiculously loud Beep comes out of my local computer. I’ve muted the speakers and disabled every setting in RD, but it still happens.
Enter the interwebs. Or, more specifically, a site called Weyland.be.
Turns out there is a system device called “Beep”. Seriously. Stop it and disable its startup, and the Beep goes away. You can find it under “Non-Plug and Play Drivers” after enabling “Show Hidden Devices” in the Device Manager. Full instructions at Weyland.be.
