OnEvent>KEY_DOWN_ Suppressing WinOS 'beeps'

Post by jbas » Tue Feb 04, 2020 2:25 am

. When I use OnEvent>KEY_DOWN key combinations that are not recognized by Windows I get an annoying 'beep'.
. I can suppress the beep by changing the 'current' default beep in the Registry to 'null' (and then restoring the value that was present when the macro began on exit) but does someone know a better way to do this?
. Silencing the 'default beep' hasn't been any trouble for me (in fact I have very much enjoyed it)- but I would rather not be mucking around with this
