Ever wish you could disable the startup music Zwift plays before you begin riding?

Some people find it annoying to hear the same song every time–otherwise simply don’t want any music because they’re already listening to tunes or watching TV as they ride. Here’s how you can turn off the startup song forever.

  • Get to the right location:
    On PC, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Zwift\data\Audio\PC
    On Mac, go to Mac HD\Users\Account Name (specific to your setup)\Library\Application Support\Zwift\data\Audio\OSX
  • Rename file “777200017.wem” to “777200017.tmp”. This file contains your startup song. Changing the extension to .tmp allows you to keep the file on your computer in case you want it back, but prevents Zwift from finding and playing it on startup.
