    How to: Play Sound at Logon (Sign-in) in Windows 10

    Information Starting in Windows 8, the Windows Logon sound event has been disabled. This leaves you unable to change or play the Windows Logon sound at sign-in in Windows 10.

    As a workaround, you can still create an elevated task to play a sound at sign-in (logon) to Windows 10.

    This tutorial will show you how to play a sound at logon (sign-in) for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator with a password to create an elevated task.


    Here's How:

    1. Press the Win+R keys to open Run, type taskschd.msc into Run, and click/tap on OK to open Task Scheduler.

    2. Click/tap on Task Scheduler Library in the left pane of Task Scheduler, and click/tap on Create Task in the right Actions pane. (see screenshot below)

    Play Sound at Logon (Sign-in) in Windows 10

    Logoff, Logon, shutdown, restart, startup sounds not playing


    I'm running Threshold 2 of Win10. It seems the Startup Sound is working again. Previously, even checked it would only play intermittently on a warm boot, not a cold one. Now it seems to work all the time. There is a 3rd party app that lets you change the Startup Sound to whatever you want, without you having to go through the hack steps.

    The Exit Windows sound is another matter. Even enabled via the Registry and reappearing in the Sound list, selecting a sound for that does not make it play at shutdown.

    - Place a check mark for “Play Windows Startup sound”.
