How Do I Disable The Empty Trash Sound Effect In OS X?


How do I stop my Mac from playing a sound effect each time I empty the trash?

Launch System Preferences on your Mac by going to the Apple menu and selecting System Preferences. Open the Sound preference pane and select the Sound Effects tab. If you uncheck "Play user interface sound effects" your Mac will stop playing sounds when emptying the trash, taking a screenshot, etc.
