Not Sure What You're Asking

Each time you click on the volume slider from the speaker icon in the lower right corner, it's designed to make the default beep.. Are you suggesting it beep one time but not another?.. You want it to beep only after you click on it a second time? I've not seen such done..

But if you're simply trying to turn on and off the sound, open the volume slider and place a CHECK in the box that says: "Mute".. It would then allow you to select when sounds were heard.. But ALL sounds would be muted, not just the slider bar click.

Hope this helps.

Laptop or desktop?

About all I can think is that some software might trigger a beep at the max/min points. Does this sound like what's happening? If so, you could check control panel under sounds to see if it's there and change it to "none".

Beep sound

are the sound card drivers installed properly? also, is your new sound card selected as the default playback device? Sorry, its a standard feature and is not customizable. You can stop the noise by going to Sounds from the Control Panel and looking at Exclamation, Default Beep, Critical Stop and find out which one has the beep that you don't like and remove it.

Note: this will also take away the sound for the type of prompt associated with it. And another drawback is that your actual PC may beep from its internal speaker.

Alternatively - You can purchase a Multimedia keyboard that has volume controls on it.

And when I say no sound, it means NO SOUND at all.
