  1. This did not work for me. The problem seems to be very common and should fixed immediately. It is very annoying as well as inconvenient.

    • if you go to the charms portion and go to settings then you can click on change pc settings. once there (your windows 8 should be updated) click on PC and devices. from there click on typing. in that section it will give you the option to turn the sound off. it says “”play key sounds as I type” there you can switch it to off! so much better!!

  2. Did not work either. It’s really annoying, Microsoft makes great products but every single one has to have one really annoying feature you cannot turn off. Please start fixing those, it would probably help you with your market ratings as well…
