    A different sound for the Alarms app


    I there a way to add a .wav file to the choice of alarm sounds. I can hardly hear the ones available because they are too short. I have some songs as well as ringers that I can hear across the room.

    Another question is since the W-10 update I have been bugged by scrolling. On occassion, an icon pops up with 4 arrows left, right, up & dn. When I move the mouse then I scroll all over the place. I can shut it off by a click of the left mouse key How to disable eetc.

    :)

  2. E72 - Alarm

    Hi,



    I noticed that if I have 2 alarms and I change the alarm sound then this will affect all alarms!

    How can I set different alarm sounds for different alarms?



    Thanks.

    Setting a specific sound for a specific alarm

    1 -- Windows 10 Mobile version 1703

    2 -- It has always been like this, since I got the phone and preset alarms.

    I do the following:

    1 -- Set an alarm in Clocks and Alarms

    2 -- Click on the item, "Sound > From My Music or From My Ringtones" and then I select a specific Ringtone, "Pear" for example.

    When the alarm sounds, it plays the Alarm Set in the Notifications for the Alarms App, overriding the setting for the individual alarm that is set.

    UPDATE: Further experimenting, I set the Alarms App Default Notification to "Default", and now the alarms that I choose a custom alarm sound for, now play. But, what about other alarms, I might want to set a different "default" alarm sound
    to?

    You would need to replace one or more of the "Alarm01.wav" files in C:/Windows/Media with one of your own, and only 01 - 10

    My mouse does similar but only when 'Gesture' button is held down.

    You should be able to assign 'None' to the action.
