  2. My desktop was replaced with start menu?

    First, try Settings>Personalization>Start, toggle off Use Start Full Screen.

    Then in the Themes tab, set a Theme.

    In addition Microsoft has collected spectacular
    Themes collections
    to download and set as a slideshow. These will install at Control Panel>Personalization>My Themes.

    Right now I am using a New Zealand nautical theme with ocean, tugboat, foghorn and shorebirds sounds.

    Let us know how this goes.

    One day I am nautical with spectacular seashores and sounds of seagulls and foghorns replacing default Windows sounds, the next day I am in an Amazon forest with animal sounds for alerts.

  5. I've heard that sound before, I think it's a warning of a program or driver not loading correctly... not sure where or how to check, maybe the device manager first... the sound is part of the windows theme as far as I can tell...
