The windows BEEP

Working with mysql from the windows command line always unleashes at some point the loudest sound that can be generated by a sound card.

Well, here is how to turn off that feature.

Thank you Ben. You’ve saved my ears.

Perform the following steps to disable your machine’s system beep:

1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage.

2. Expand System Tools and select Device Manager.

3. From the View menu, select Show hidden devices.

4. Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers.

5. Right-click Beep, and select Properties.

6. Select the Drivers tab.

7. Click Stop. You can also change the start-up type to Disabled so the beep service never starts.

  1. In case you actually want to here the beep,

    With linux:
    echo -e “\007” >/dev/tty10

    And windows (type Ctrl-G to output the ^G):
    echo “^G”
