How to disable the startup sound in Windows 11

Microsoft has included a new startup sound in the recently released Windows 11 operating system. The starting sound effects have made a reappearance after the company deleted them by default in the Windows 10 operating system.

While sound effects improve the user experience, they are not for everyone, and some of you may find them bothersome at times, especially if you are used to not having them with the Windows 10 operating system. In that situation, you can quickly disable your computer’s startup sound.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to quickly and effectively disable the startup sound effects on your computer running Windows 11.
