Me too Hannah - It was so hard to find by looking for it myself, across many times - until I googled it, just now. It worked, the annoying sound is gone. Annoyance after all these years too - unbelievable. Microsoft does not do things as intuition suggests - always logical and not creatively intuitive. They should be truly User friendly. Thank you for this explanation! 11/19/2017.
