|By default, Windows makes a faint sound when you open or close a|
window. That can be changed in the Sound control panel.
But I'm not aware of it making a sound for every keystroke! Maybe you
accidentally turned on some "Ease of Access Center" setting. Those
settings are also available from the Control Panel. I don't see any that
look like they would make a sound at each keystroke, but they seem
to like to hide the settings like Easter eggs. I just installed Windows,
and the first time I held down the shift key for 5 seconds while trying to
remember what I was going to type, a popup popped up asking me if
I wanted to use mouse keys (I think it was), It also offered a way to
turn that function off in the Ease of Access Center, which I did. Now I
can hold down the shift key for as long as I want...
