Remove annoying beep sound on Windows Subsystem for Linux

Published on Author JFLeave a comment

When using BASH on WSL, by default it will constantly beep at you while using the TAB key, etc.

Here’s how to remove it:

nano ~/.inputrc

Scroll down and remove the # comment from:

#set bell-style none

Close and re-open Bash.

Vi also has a bell sound (I prefer Nano for whatever reason). In that case do:

vi ~/.vimrc
set visualbell
set t_vb=
