Everyday, I spend hours in my college’s library to do my homework and I am always disturbed by the startup sound from people’s computers. By default, when you start your computer, it will make a sound to get your attention. However, in the classroom or the meeting, it’s not a very good function for you — people may stare at you due to that sound. Therefore, in this article, I will show you how to turn off startup sound in Windows 8.


This tip is very easy to do, you just need to follow these steps.

  • Go to the desktop (if you are in Windows Store app or the Start screen) then right click/long tap on the empty space.
  • Next, you have to choose “Personalize.”
