Make sure Windows sound alerts don't disturb you when you are watching movies on your computer - use SoundOff.
Now our PCs have become media centers where we listen to music and radio, watch TV and films, Windows' sound alerts can be annoying.
While it's possible to go through the control panel and turn them all off individually, this can be tiresome, especially if you like sound alerts when you're not watching movies. SoundOff is a tiny little app that solves this with a just a click.
On installation, SoundOff sits as a little icon in your toolbar and, when activated, silences all Windows alerts, allowing you peace and quiet to listen to whatever you like on your desktop. SoundOff also allows you to save different sound profiles whenever you change sound settings, so have a set of different settings available to use quickly and easily.
SoundOff gives you a function that Windows should really have already - it's a small thing, but surprisingly useful.
