Does the sound you hear when you press a key on the on-screen keyboard sound like fingernails on a chalkboard to you? If so, you can turn off the keyboard sound on your iPhone and iPad, as well as Windows and Android devices. We’ll show you how.
Mute Keyboard Sound on iPhone and iPad
On iPhone and iPad, Apple makes it easy to mute the keyboard sound.
To do this, first launch “Settings” on your device. Then choose Sounds and Feels > Keyboard Responsiveness.
On older iPhones and iPads, select Sounds.
On the Keyboard Response page, turn off the Sounds option. This disables the sound played when a key is pressed.
On older iPhones and iPads, you simply disable the Keyboard Clicks option.
From now on, your keyboard will be silent when you type something with it.
Disable Keyboard Sound on Android
On Android, the method for muting the keyboard sound depends on the phone model and the keyboard app. If you’re using Google Gboard or a Samsung keyboard, you’ll find instructions for muting keypress sounds for those keyboards here.
Disable Gboard Keystroke Sound on Android
To disable Gboard, launch the Settings app on your Android phone. Then select System > Languages & Input > Virtual Keyboard > Gboard.
In “Settings”, click “Settings”.
On the Settings screen, in the Keystroke section, turn off Keypress Sound.
And you have successfully muted your phone’s Gboard keyboard.
Disable Samsung Keyboard Sound on Android
To disable the Samsung keyboard on your Samsung phone, first launch the Settings app on your phone.
In Settings, go to Sounds and Vibration > System Sound/Vibration Control.
In the “Sound” section, turn off “Samsung Keyboard”.
Optionally, to disable keyboard vibration, turn off “Samsung Keyboard” in the “Vibration” section.
Disable touch keyboard sound in Windows 10
In Windows 10, disabling the keyboard sound is as easy as disabling an option in Settings.

In the right pane, under the “Touch keyboard” heading, turn off the “Play key sounds as you type” option.
Disable touch keyboard sound in Windows 11
On Windows 11, you will use the Settings app to turn off the keyboard sound.
To get started, launch the Settings app. Then, on the left sidebar, select Time & Language.
In the right pane, select Enter.
Select “Touch Keyboard” to expand the menu. Then turn off the “Play key sounds as you type” option.
That’s all. Your Windows 11 keyboard does not make any sounds when you press keys.
Disable On-Screen Keyboard Sound in Windows 10 and 11
If you’ve used the Windows 10 or 11 On-Screen Keyboard, you’ve noticed that every keystroke makes a sound. Luckily, you can also disable these sounds.
Start by launching the on-screen keyboard. Then select the Options key on your keyboard.
You will see the Options window. Here at the top, turn off the “Use click sound” option. Then click “OK” at the bottom.
With these tips, you should now be able to type without sound. Enjoy!
