Turn off Internet Explorer clicking sound

How to turn off that annoying click Microsoft Internet Explorer makes when a link is pressed.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio devices
  • Click the 'Sounds' tab.
  • In the window, scroll down to 'Windows Explorer' and in the sub menu, highlight 'Start navigation'
  • Pull down the drop down box below, where it currently says 'Start' or 'Windows Start' and choose '(none)'
  • Click 'Apply',
  • Click OK
  • Close the Control Panel.

No more clicking :-)
