How to Turn Off Sounds in Your Internet Browser

By

Have you ever wondered how to turn off sounds in your internet browser? Many sweepstakes sites play sounds or music when you visit them, which can be annoying -- especially if you enter sweepstakes from work. These tips will help you turn off sounds in your browser, allowing you to enter sweepstakes in peace. These tips should work for all internet sounds for people with the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Turning off sounds in your internet browser takes only a few seconds.

Here's How:

  1. Open Your Control Panel

    The easiest way to open the Control Panel is to click on "Start" and then click on "Control Panel."
  2. Open the Internet Options

    Double click on "Internet Options" to open that section of the Control Panel.
  3. Select the "Advanced" Tab

    The Advanced Tab is usually on the far-right side of the Internet Options screen.
  4. Scroll Down to Multimedia

    Scroll through the options until you see the section called "Multimedia."
  5. Deselect the Play Sounds Option

    Click to un-check the option called "Play Sounds in Webpages." This will turn off all sounds in your internet browsers.
  6. Turn Sounds On Again When You're Finished Sweeping

    If you would like to resume listening to sounds on your internet browser, be sure to follow these steps again once you are done entering sweepstakes, and check the "Play Sounds in Webpages" option once again.
