How To Turn Off Keyboard Clicks on Samsung Galaxy S3 & Note 2

How to stop annoying keyboard clicks Galaxy S3

After going through with the latest operating system update Android 4.1.2 Jellybean, you may have noticed that SOME of your settings may have been set back to factory defaults.  I found one in particular to be extreeeeeeemely annoying – the keyboard clicks.  I don’t know about you, but physiologically speaking, my brain tells my thumbs to move to select a character.  Thus, I am fully aware that I am tapping the touch screen on my device.  So why in the world do I need to HEAR myself performing this action?!  Even more daunting is the question of why I would ever feel the need to put those within a 10 foot radius through this audible torture?  Seriously, If you have an answer to this question, please email me, because I would love to know why anyone would want their keyboard to make a noise EVERY SINGLE TIME they touch it.  That being said…

I went crazy trying to figure out how to get this to stop.  On the previous operating system version, you can to toggle this on and off by going to your Settings App and then to Sounds.  Well I tried this…..over and over and over and over.  Nope!  Those clicking noises remained in all their tedious glory.  Back to the drawing board.  I was determined.

Here’s how it’s done boys and girls…

1.  Under your SETTINGS app, click on LANGUAGE AND INPUT.

    Thank you so much! This has been driving me nuts. I’m not sure I ever would have figured it out on my own. ..and really the solution was so quick and simple.

      Hey Anthony,

      No problem. Remember this though…the world needs crazy people too. That’s why they make straight jackets.
