  1. Windows System Sound When I Press a Key


    I just recently uograded my PC and use hotkeys for programs such as Discord and now whenever i click on the desktop and then use the hotkey, or press any key for that matter it makes a Windows System sound. I believe its the default sound or the exclamation since both of those are the same sound. Is there any known reason why pressing a key while having the desktop in focus would make a windows sound?

    :)
