    Windows 10 Toggle Keys do not sound


    Hello,


    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro due to the support of Win 7 being discontinued.


    Everything went smoothly but there is an issue with the Toggle Keys not making any sound.


    The issue is very similar to this topic:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/toggle-key-sound-keeps-disappearing/04302c41-15da-4ae4-ac44-cdbfb74feafb


    I have tried everything in that topic but no luck in solving the issue.


    Now here's the strange thing about it. If I press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the Gray screen with these options:

    • Lock
    • Switch User
    • Sign Out
    • Change a Password
    • Task Manager


    I can now press Num Lock / Caps Lock / Scroll Lock and the sound does activate with the usual Low-High beep. When I press ESC or click CANCEL to return to Windows the Toggle Keys sound then does not activate anymore.


    Also, the Toggle Keys sound will work when Windows boots to the initial login screen requesting my password. Once logged in it will not sound.

    :)

    Toggle key sound keeps disappearing

    Hi Zero_Kamikaze,

    A corrupted sound driver is one of the possible reasons why you are having sound issues on your computer. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • Do you have a third-party security software installed?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest that you download and install the latest sound driver from the manufacturer's website of your device. Also, you can try the steps in this

    Windows 10 Toggle Keys do not sound

    Toggle keys no sound

    This seems to be an ongoing issue for many for years, & it's still happening!

    Toggle key sounds worked fine, until fairly recently (there's been several Windows updates!) but now no sound.

    I've located my issue to the Realtek® Audio.

    Uninstalling the device, rolling back the driver, updating the driver (both auto & downloading manually) all fix the issue temporarily, but at the next or subsequent restart the "no sound" problem returns.

    Something within Windows is apparently corrupting the driver.

    I would add, other system sounds work normally, only Toggle Key sounds are affected.

    Come on Microsoft provide a
    permanent fix!
