Fix for MS Office Word Update–How to Stop Unwanted Sound Effects.

Rick ReedNews2 Comments

I don’t think I’m the only one who recently updated MS Word on a Mac and now have unwanted sound effects when pasting, copying, cutting, etc.

I downloaded the update for Word 2011 on my Mac in April 2016 and sounds would play every time I would cut and paste etc. Here’s how to stop those pesky sounds.

For Mac users:
Open any document in Word.
Go to Word on top menu.
Go to Preferences
Go to General
Go to Provide Feedback With Sound and uncheck that box.

PROBLEM SOLVED. YOU DON’T HAVE TO THANK ME.

  1. What happens if you want the sounds? Word 2016 Mac has the check box, but when I check it nothing happens.

    1. Try refreshing your screen, or restarting the computer. I have had trouble with MSWord several times and had to reboot to get past the issue.
