Ever had to restart your Mac and you (or someone else) has been annoyed by the startup chime? If so, give Silent Start a try today. It's able to silent the chime and then restore the volume back to normal after it starts up.

The only exception is if headphones are plugged in, and in that case macOS doesn't allow Silent Start (or any other app) access to the internal speakers. However, Silent Start will show a helpful dialog right before restart/shutdown to give you a chance to unplug them so it can mute the startup chime.

What's new in Version 1.1.7

[New] Menubar icon! This was a highly requested change so we hope you like the new one.
[New] Using a toggle button in the menu to easily and quickly show the status of the startup chime muting.
[New] Added option to not show the confirm quit dialog again.
[Improved] The notes for the feature to show an alert on shutdown so it's clear about why the dock icon/menubar need to be shown.
[Fixed] Some minor issues when the app is first launched.

Customer Reviews


This new version crashed on install and will not allow re-installation.
It shows as downloaded but appears no where in my applications folder.

Works Like a Charm

Works perfectly on my iMac running macOS Sierra 10.12.6. No longer does my computer start-ups awaken my wife in the wee morning hours. *Note that I have my "Silent Start" Preferences set as illustrated in screen shot #3. Thank you Turnabelly Software Inc.
