    program sounds

    I didn't make any suggestions.

    I didn't get the sounds, I selected to play.

    Trying to play startup and shutdown sounds, drastically increased the boot up, shut down, and restart times, in windows 10.

    I went back and reset the play sounds at startup and shutdown to no.

    I used the procedures in this thread

    Play Sound at Shutdown in Windows 10

    Hello Comp Cmdo, *Smile

    That's correct. You'll need to be signed in to an administrator account with a password to be able to create the task in this tutorial.

    Good Morning,

    I have created the scheduled task to play the selected exit sound but the sound will not play. When I open Task Scheduler and click on the task and click run, the .wav plays and the status of the task is ready, any suggestions.

    Hello Anders, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Did you follow the steps exactly?

    The key is steps 5 and 12. If a mistake was made with either one, the task will not run.

    In addition, see if having your .wav file in the same location I used as an example may help.

    Hello Brink,

    Thank you for the welcome and response. I double checked both steps 5 and 12 and both are correct. I had previously tried the registry edit to have the exit sound option show but never unchecked or reverted the registry to its previous status, could this be the problem.

    The registry edit to show the Sound setting shouldn't affect this.

    Where do you have the .wav sound located at?

    If you like, upload the .wav file, and I'll test it on my system to rule that out.

    Hi Brink,

    I have run the task in Task Scheduler and it plays the exit sound only if I login with a password, if I delete the password, then the sound will not play. I guess I will just not have a shutdown sound.

    Anders,

    Yeah, the task requires the password of an administrator account for it to be able to run with highest privileges.

    Nice solution.

    But Windows its actually configurable through the default Sound control panel dialogue after changing a registry setting.

    In the registry editor, go to:

    Code: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\EventLabels\SystemExit[/quote] and change the value of the key

    Code: ExcludeFromCPL[/quote] from 1 to 0.

    Then go to (might vary according to Windows version)

    Settings, in the search box, type sounds, and select Change system sounds. In Program Events, Exit Windows will now be an option.

    There are also similar settings for Logon and Logoff.

    Hello xArx, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Unfortunately, that registry change will indeed add "Exit Windows" to the "Sounds" control panel, but it doesn't actually work to play the sound for it or log on and log off.

    Play Sound at Shutdown in Windows 10

    That should be able to play then.

    It wouldn't hurt to test by doing a Shift+Shutdown to see if there's any difference for you.

  14. I've applied this tutorial to log off, log on, and shutdown, but it seems as though the shutdown sound doesn't audibly play half the time, even when Task Scheduler says it completed successfully, and when the path is both correct and as close to the C:\Windows\Media folder as possible. I think it's shutting down too quickly for PowerShell to play the sound, as when it plays, it's usually cut off midway. Is there a way to delay this so that it will play and then shutdown after it has finished playing? I think it might be possible with a bit of scripting.

    Hello Robert, *Smile

    I find that using a short playing sound works best because of this issue of it shutting down sometimes before the sound has finished playing.

    I'm not sure about a way to delay the shutdown until the sound has finished playing.
