    Turning off Midnight Chime

    Long time since I last posted here, but curious if anyone might know how to identify what makes Windows 10 play a chime (Using the Windows 10 Default System Sound, it sounds like the Asterisk Sound) at Midnight when the computer is on.

    I really don't need it and can't figure out where it is coming from.

    Things I have running at the moment:

    Synergy 2
    Google Backup and Sync
    Logitech Gaming Software
    Powerchute Personal Edition
    Task Manager

  2. chime


    If the notification sound has already been turned off but you still receive that chime randomly, then there's a possibility that the notifications you are receiving are from apps and other senders that has not been turned off.

    For us to isolate this case, we would like to ask the following information:

    • When do you get the notification?
    • Do you get it when a new email arrives or if someone sends you a message in Skype, etc.?

    To manage the notifications from other senders, follow the steps below:

    • Go to Settings, then click System.
    • Click on Notifications & actions.
    • Under Get notifications from these senders, toggle Off
      the app that you don't want to receive any notification.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to let us know.

    Thanks, but I don't want to set the clock so it chimes on the hour. I want to set it so it DOESN'T chime on the hour.
