  1. Occasionally hearing Windows system sound (default), how do I find out where it comes from?


    Only system sounds are specified as sources in the sound mixer.

    I have countless programs open, closing them all would be very costly. How can I narrow this down?

    Win10 1903

    Windows 10 - find out where sound is coming from

    My cat pressed on a function key on my keyboard and now a playlist or song plays somewhere in the background. I don't know how to stop it, there is no suspicious task in the task manager or in the tray.

    How can I figure out where the sound is coming from?

    Windows 10 screen saver - How do i find out where the photo is from?

    any suggestions where on the microsoft website? i already tried searching there and i get a lot of links to how to download screen savers, etc., but nothing on how to find out where the photo was taken. this may sound trivial, but i believe in photo captions
    or at least locations. thanks

    Occasionally hearing Windows system sound (default), how do I find out where it comes from?

    How do I change default system notification sound?

    I've been using W10 on my devices (HTC One M8, Lumia 950XL) for awhile now. I finally got tired of hearing the default notification sound for system alerts. I know to change the app notifications, you go to ALL SETTINGS > SYSTEM > NOTIFICATIONS & ACTIONS.

    However no where in there does it suggest how to change the default notification. I've searched both Bing and Google. No luck.

    Ideas? FWIW, I'm on Build 14283.1000 in the Fast ring. Though this has been kind of nagging me since I got the 950XL.

    TIA
