Seems like if I have something selected and use the keyboard shortcut to zoom in, the hold space bar to get the Hand tool, Illustrator CS 5 beeps. There seems to be so much beeping in the app that I've turned my sound off.
Any way to stop the beeping aside from not using the tools Illustrator gave us!?
Here is what I found
when using a Wacom in windows 10

"If Accessibility Options doesn't fix the issue for you, then check Options
in the On Screen Keyboard app (osk.exe). Remove the check mark from the box:
If you haven't already figured it out here is the link that worked for me. I just went to sounds in windows 10 by right clicking on the speaker to the right on the taskbar. Then I selected no sounds under Sound Scheme. This still allowed me to play music and youtube videos. It seems to have only turned off alerts.
i'm now having this problem Not just when i hit Alt and then some other key, but also when i press the X to switch BG/FG COlors and the D, that occurs even if the menus are not Highlighted
I made a solution.
Disabling a windows OS sound is not a solution. I got so tired of this beep that I wrote a small, simple program in C# to automatically (read: programmatically) press the [alt] key after I lift up on the [alt] key in Photoshop. That way if I'm zooming in on an image in Photoshop, and I release [alt] to stop zooming, my program will immediately press [alt] in the background to remove focus from the alt-menus. This allows me to then immediately press the space bar to pan around the image, and I do not get any annoying beeps. It's basically just pressing [alt] again for you (like the Adobe staff said to do), only you don't even notice it.
All I have to do is startup my program and let it run in the background. This beeping was driving me bonkers, so I spent a couple hours and just fixed it myself since Adobe doesn't seem to care.
IDEALLY Adobe would just allow us to customize the zoom controls to use [ctrl]+scrollwheel instead of [alt]... you know, like every other windows program out there.
Let me know if you guys want my program. I can clean it up, and then share it somehow.
That's funny how this literally never happened in any other non-Adobe program I've ever used on any PC, yet this is still an unsolved issue. I don't understand how so many people can work properly with photoshop beeping every time you need to use the most basic and common shortcuts.
