By default Audibles are enabled in Yahoo! Messenger and they always play audio sounds whenever they are initiated by the user. While talking about initialization of Audibles technically it means that they produce sounds whenever they are sent or received to or by the users respectively. For home users this configuration is a real fun as a sound which are produced by the Audibles are funny. However in many production environments playing audio files is not at all allowed and therefore in such conditions users may want to configure Yahoo! Messenger so that they may not produce any sounds when Audibles are initialized. As Yahoo! Messenger user in Windows 7 if you want to configure the Audibles so that they may not produce sounds you are required to follow the steps given below:
