Once it is in the short cut you can click on it and it will you give you option to on or off.
local.prop method: first, you have to create an empty file named called local.prop and add a line ro.camera.sound.forced = 0 into it.
For that, open Notepad on your computer, paste below code into it and save the file as local.prop.Remember, not to save as local.prop.txt.
ro.camera.sound.forced = 0
