NoteTab and immediately saved it as "silent.wav", a zero-byte file.
Media Player Classic merely said it could not render the file and Irfan
View complained it was "not a valid metafile", but NoteTab took it in
stride and uttered nary a word (nor beep, in this case).
Incidently, on my system at least, leaving the "Paste Sound" field blank
does not use the PC speaker but rather the "default beep" sound file.
Excellent suggestion on the sound file. Belongs in the great NoteTab

All PCs come equipped with a speaker in its case which has to be
connected to the mainboard. It is from this speaker that the default
beep sounds forth. These built-in speakers (which can't be used by
soundcards) have been getting smaller and smaller over the years. My
newest one is so small it almost looks like nothing is there. Which
is why 'so small' is perfect for the pipsqueak beep, if we let it be
I've never owned desktop/soundcard speakers specifically for my PCs.
I have always connected my (onboard) soundcards directly to my stereo
Perhaps that's why I was blissfully unoffended by no beep. I have my
NoteTab Pro almost always open, with about 75 files open and
accessible in Quick List, including one called PasteBoard.txt. My
soundcard has been enabled for sometime, but my speakers (that input
on my stereo receiver) are connected to another system which is the
only one I use for any multimedia.
I haven't heard a beep for a long time on this system and so I had
need to reactivate the PC speaker (which evidently requires
uninstalling the soundcard, though I'm not sure if that should make
total sense) for reasons as I noted earlier.
