Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 - App For Keyboard Clicking Sounds?
Mar 31, 2014
App that works well with Windows 8.1, to make clickety sounds when you type on a regular keyboard? You know, so it will sound like a typewriter or something like that. Something that gives you a little audio feedback when you type, but doesn't have gimmicky, "funny" sounds.
I tried ClicKey, which is a good program because you can adjust the sound level, but it didn't work well for me. It stopped clicking after while.I also tried KSG, but it didn't work at all. I tried quertick, and it works fine, but you can't adjust the sound level.
I am being driven mad by the clicking sound every time I do a keystroke on my wireless keyboard, how do I turn it off? Have disabled windows sounds so none play. I have gone into typing in PC settings and the turn sounds off is not there.
After I upgraded to 8.1, I am not getting any sounds when hitting the individual keys on the onscreen keyboard. I have looked all through GodMode regarding 'Sounds' but can't find anything to enlighten me. It is turned on in "PC settings".
I have had this problem with my hp Envy 6 ever since I got it. I installed windows 8 on it however when ever i would right click anywhere in my computer (the view/refresh menu would come however the new/view/sort one would not come) it no matter if it be with the trackpad or a mouse the blue circle would start spinning forever and i would be forced to close the folder i currently have:
Core i-5 1.7 Ghz 4.00 Gb RAM 64 bit Windows 8
(I am not all that sure whether or not i have windows 8 or 8.1 so i can't really say)
I have provided a recording that i have provided in the attachement below:
i bought a new laptop (HP Envy m6-1140sg) some weeks ago. I have Nortin Internet Security installed.
I wanted to try out that NIS Trial Reset because HP Laptops have NIS already installed. I rebooted my Laptop into safe mode with Network and then started it. I accidentally chose to Purge my NIS. I didn't know what purge means. . I opened the Trial Reset app again and chose to revert my trial to 60 days. Then it disappeared. I rebooted my laptop in Normal Mode and then tried to open NIS. But it didnt come up. I uninstalled NIS and then I noticed this:
When I try to open the Explorer on the desktop, the screen would just go blue and then Explorer closes itself. 2. When I right click a shortcut or anything the screen also goes blue. After the screen goes blue it would go normal again.
PS. I can only open Explorer when i open it through an other shortcut. ex. I got a shortcut to an directory (C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XaerosoftAirbus X ExtendedDocumentation) That is the only way I can open Explorer, but as i said, the screen will go blue if I right click anything.
At present I cannot run any program installer except by right clicking and choosing 'Run as Administrator'.
This has happened twice recently and the cause is totally unknown to me. I have just recently re-installed everything afresh, and this morning I have got the same problem - I clicked on an installer and the following error message popped up:
Unable to execute file in temporary directory. Setup aborted. Error 5: Access is denied.
Bought windows 8, and everything immediately opens if my mouse is over. I don't click, it is just over a link, or an app, and it is opens. And YES, I did not chose at mouse setup, the function. What to do?
I installed programs called vaultClient by SourceGear, Mumble (a chat client) on my machine, needed to do a reboot. After rebooting, the Start interface show up with all the tiles and what have you, but clicking into Desktop rendered nothing, clicking any of the program tiles, nothing. Going into Apps and trying to open programs, nothing.....I can't do anything but look at the Start interface, but when clicking on my machineName icon to Sign out, that works.
How can we reset the size of the screen that is presented after clicking on a tile in windows 8? I have two monitors and have my desktop going across both monitors the way I like it. However when you click on a windows 8 tile, the screen it brings up fills both monitors. its annoying because whatever I am viewing is centered down the middle of two monitors and trying to read it is awful. I want to be able to set the window size that appears after clicking a tile to be half a screen (only one monitor). How to accomplish this? I know you can go to desktop mode and it will be sized however I like it, but I need to change the size of the windows after clicking the tile.
whenever I right click on the desktop to sort my icons windows 8 freezes and its explorer starts. I've installed my graphics card driver and it still won't like me get the right click menu is there any way to fix this?
No Audio or Sounds from Speakers or Headphone Jack after upgrade to Windows 8
Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX
Processor: Intel Celeron 900 @ 2.20Ghz 2.12GHz x64 bit
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
Audio Driver/Sound Processor: Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio 22.214.171.124 Windows 7 64-bit Realtek High Definition Audio Driver 126.96.36.19914 / 188.8.131.5214 Windows 8 64-bit
The Laptop originally ran on Windows 7 and I updated the OS to windows 8 and upon doing this the audio stopped completely from all audio sources (i.e. windows sounds,speakers,line- in/heaphone jack).
I tried Disable/Reenable driver,Rollback driver,uninstall/reinstall and discovered that the driver is not supported for windows 8. Upon learning this I have tried other Audio Drivers (i.e. Realtek HD Drivers etc) and no avail.
I've recently updated to Windows 8.1 and it auto reinstalled the original audio driver and still, no sound. I have also checked all Audio Codecs and still no luck even going that route.
When I play an mp3 on let's say wmplayer the volume bar will move up and down with the levels of the song that's playing as per usual but I get no sound. Volume level can be at 100% and there won't be any noise at all, no distortion, white noise, just silence.
This happens no matter how sound is being produced music, videos, games, internet, windows sounds etc... And trying to get audio from headphone jack doesn't work either.
Any solutions to the out of date driver issue I am having? Seems that the driver not being compatible with win 8.1 is where the errors began. Is there a fix for this or am I best off getting a usb audio driver and running my sound that route?
I just built a new gaming PC with windows 8 and an msi z87 g45 motherboard. It's amazing, and I installed the Soundblaster and realteck Hd drivers.
The only problem that I'm having is that every time 2 things play at once, the other's volume is lowered. like when I am playing battlefield 4, my gun sound good and then when my friend talks on teamspeak my gun is barely heard for a few seconds afterward. Ive tried changing the "communications- do nothing" thing, but it's not working.
My system sounds work fine: if I navigate to the folder c:windowsmedia and double-click on a particular sound it plays correctly. However, if I go to Control PanelSound and select the "Sounds" tab none of the system sounds responds when I click on the green "Test" button.
how to get the logon, logoff, unlock, lock, shutdown sounds to play in windows 8.1. I have the "play startup sound" box checked off and i also went into the registry and changed the 1s to 0s and brought them to the sounds.
About a week ago, I was wondering how I went about enabling the Startup sound to play. I discovered that in order to have any Startup sound playing, the option needed to be checked in Control Panel > Sounds. Coincidentally, I found that the Windows Logon/Logoff options were missing, so I went into the registry and changed the necessary 1's to 0's, and now they appear as they should. However, when I select a sound for them, it doesn't play when I log on. It is important to note that I'm under the impression that the Logon sound and Startup sound are two different things. The Startup sound I found that I could not change without messing up Metro, so I left it as the default Windows Vista/7 sound that plays. But if I am correct, there should also be a sound played when you log in or log off.
So, in short, how do I get the login/logoff sounds to play?
I have a toshiba satellite p75-a7200 with windows 8. When I hook up my logitech z 2300 speakers it sounds like crap. Logitech z 2300 speakers are very good speakers so this should not be happening. When I hook up my logitech z 2300 speakers to my iphone or my old dell laptop it sounds good like it should. So this makes me think that their is a Windows 8 setting that is messing up my speakers. What settings in Windows 8 do I need to change my make my speakers sound good?
Ever since I installed Windows 8 (and now Windows 8.1 Pro Preview Build 9431), I hear occasional buzzing sounds while playing .mp3 files on my desktop computer (Dell XPS 8500). This occurs using both iTunes and Winamp. The .mp3 files play fine on other devices, such as my iPod. This makes me suspect that this is a Windows problem.
Ive got a bit of annoying problem with one of my Windows 8 computers. For some reason when I right click in the bottom left corner the administration tools don't appear like they do on other computers. Oddly though they do work fine on the same computer using another user account.
I use a roaming profile and I've tried deleting it and allowing it to be reloaded but that hasn't worked.
Edit: just want to add that the administration tools menu works fine on all other windows 8 computers using the same roaming profile.
I installed Windows 8.1 earlier and had this (apparently common) watermark error on the desktop about SecureBoot having a problem.
I went into my BIOS, made sure it was enabled, and then set up some kind of "key" that the directions said to do. I clicked save and exit, and after that instead of booting into Windows, I'd be at a black screen, everything running inside my computer, and with my keyboard and mouse both turning on at the same time, then turning off at the exact same time 3-4 seconds later along with a quiet sort of clicking sound inside the computer. Over and over, looping endlessly.
I opened it up, checked connections, removed parts and tried booting with each thing moved. It only finally booted when I removed my graphics card and plugged my monitor into the onboard DVI port.
After that I shut down, put my graphics card back in, booted with the monitor still plugged into the onboard DVI, and it booted without issue. I then plugged the monitor back into the graphics card DVI port and rebooted. Went back to the clickly flashy no-POST cycle. After repeating this whole process a few times, I realized that when it's in that cycle, if I just plug the monitor into the onboard DVI port, I get the POST beep and everything boots up.
Eventually I just did some messing around in the BIOS, turned SecureBoot off as well as disabled onboard graphics and then booted the PC back up with the monitor in the graphics card DVI port. It boots fine now, I've rebooted 5-6 times now and it goes into Windows 8.1 no problem.
My mouse works fine on the tile screen, but won't click when on the desktop screen. It moves fine and if I move it to the corner I can click on the setting button, but its anything on the desktop,or programs that run from the desktop that are effected.
So my computer likes to crash normally or stop playing any sounds, so I wanted to back it up and then factory reset it and see if it fixes both problems. I downloaded macrium and saw a lot of partitions and I'm wondering if it seems weird and which ones, if not all, I should choose to back up.
I am running a Toshiba computer with Windows 8 and Google Chrome as my default browser.
Basically, any videos from any website will load but not play, and any sounds (not necessarily just from Google Chrome) won't play either. For example, when I change the volume of my computer it does not play a tone (when it normally should). I have updated Java and Adobe Shockwave to no avail.
The problem started occurring a couple of days ago. Originally I could restart my computer and I would be fine for a while, but eventually that stopped working. I have had this computer for at least 6 months and have not had any problems with it. Also I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
