Skype Sound Effects (how to turn off???)

Hey there,

is there a way to turn off audio sound effects/ notifications when you chat with somebody on Skype? As well as when people signin?

The only settings for audio is just for when signing in but there's no option to shut off any other sound effects.

Any suggestions?

You can't click on the drop-down-menu after Event?

What version of Skype do you have?

I have 2.7.0.257.

Repaired permissions yet?

Did you also deselect the Play Sound check box?

ok this is how you do it with the Mac versions of skype (this is for the newest versions - i don't know about the old versions)

first go to Skype -> Preferences ( command , )
go to the notifications area
in the notifications area you will see the following fields:

Event: <- this is where you want to select that event you want to change. (ex: i wanted to turn off the annoying message sent and received so i clicked the drop down menu and selected "Message Sent" and Message Received")

Play Sound: This is the field that you can change the sound type (you can customize your sounds here) or you can simply uncheck the box in front to turn this sound off. (**NOTE** this field corresponds directly to the event, so do event first and then change your sound or turn off/on)

Bounce Icon in the Dock: this will bounce your skype icon when you get a message 2 -3 times (click repeat to keep it bouncing if you want)

Speak Text: this is where you can have you the selected event speak text instead of playing a sound. (fun little area if you want to play a prank on someone lol!! )


So for anyone that still doesn't follow here's the process to turn off the Message Received sound

Skype -> Preferences -> Notifications -> Event = Message Received -> "uncheck" Play sound -> close Preferences (you don't need to restart skype)

that's it your done!!!!
