How to disable the startup sound in Windows 11

In the latest Windows 11 operating system that was released recently, Microsoft has provided a new startup sound. The sound effects for the startup have made a comeback as the company had disabled this by default in the Windows 10 operating system.

While the sound effects enhance the user experience, it may not be for everyone and some of you might find it annoying at times, especially if you are used to not having them with the Windows 10 OS. In that case, you can easily disable the startup sound on your computer.
