Screen Recording - Mouse Click Sound

Aug 30, 2023

I'm not sure if there's a solution to this, but I record many videos for systems training and use the View Slide option. I find the mouse click sound incredibly jarring in an otherwise quiet video.

It is incredibly tedious to individually click on every slide, then click on the mouse cursor in the timeline, then click on the menu and select None in the Clicks menu. Is there any way to turn the mouse sound off for an entire scene or recording? 

Surely given the other options we have available for recordings around mouse highlights and such, the sound could be an option to adjust?

Hi Kim,

I'm happy to jump in! Though we don't support modifying the published output, some community members disable the mouse click sounds by manually renaming or removing the MouseClickSound file, as suggested by Seth here:

When you publish your course, go to the  Storyline output\story_content folder and rename/delete the mouse click.mp3 file. Something that looks like this:


In the meantime, I've added your voice to an existing feature request for the option to adjust the mouse click sound for the whole project. We'll let you know once it makes it to our roadmap.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
