It may be that, to prevent your Mac from playing system sounds (startup, trash, etc.), you directly lower the volume of the device to the maximum. We are going to show you how you can disable these sounds in isolation , so that your Mac remains in sound mode, but without playing system sounds.
Turn off system sounds
MacOS, like any operating system, has different sounds programmed for the user interface, as well as on startup. It may be the case that we want to have the Mac in sound, but not that these specific sounds are reproduced . The solution is not to completely silence the Mac, but we can configure it to isolate these sounds.
The procedure is more than simple and is done in just a few seconds from the Mac’s own settings. We are going to teach you how to do it step by step :
- Open your Mac menu ( icon in the upper left corner).
- Go to ‘System Preferences’.
- Now go to the ‘Sound’ section.
- Within it you will see the options to deactivate the system sounds.

In the sound section you can deactivate the options to ‘play sound on startup’ and ‘play user interface sounds’. If you turn off these sounds, they won’t play again, although your Mac will still be in sound mode.
