    Information When you press the PrintScreen (PrtScrn) or Alt+PrintScreen keys, Windows will take a screenshot and copy it to your clipboard.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove a SnapShot sound to play when the PrintScreen key is pressed in Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the SnapShot sound, all users will be able to change the SnapShot sound (if added) to any .wav file they like for their account.

    Note In Windows 10, the SnapShot sound will not play if you set to automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive.

    If you use any third party tool that takes over using the PrintScreen key, then the SnapShot sound will not play.




    Here's How:

    Add or Remove SnapShot Sound for PrintScreen Key in Windows [​IMG]
    Note The .reg files below will add or remove the SnapShot registry key below.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SnapShot




    1. Do step 2 (add) or step 3 (remove) below for what you would like to do.


    2. To Add SnapShot Sound
    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Remove_SnapShot_sound.reg

    Download

    4. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    5. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6. If prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

    7. You can now delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Add or Remove SnapShot Sound for PrintScreen Key in Windows :p

    Hi Zero_Kamikaze,

    A corrupted sound driver is one of the possible reasons why you are having sound issues on your computer. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • Do you have a third-party security software installed?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest that you download and install the latest sound driver from the manufacturer's website of your device. Also, you can try the steps in this
