Remove annoying beep sound on Windows Subsystem for Linux

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=
