  1. Windows 10 1903 weird 'Asterisk' sound every hour and on some normal user actions


    Hi,


    After update to 1903 i get the 'Asterisk' sound every hour and i do not understand why.


    All i could find is this:


    Windows 10 1903 weird 'Asterisk' sound every hour and on some normal user actions e74e3408-dcbd-4d67-8c12-fd602e9a3480?upload=true.png


    As you can see 2 special logons, no other events logged of any type.



    I get the same sound when doing some normal actions too:


    1) Open sound settings from sys try

    2) Open 'Sound Control Panel' from sound settings

    3) Open anything from control panel

    4) Save image from snipping tool

    ...


    What is doing this? what should i disable? is driving me crazy.

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 Action Center Stuck in Quiet Hours


    Hi, I find this interesting (in a warped, twisted sort of way *Wink)
    Set Quiet Hours in Windows 10 - Windows Help -


    Set Quiet Hours in Windows 10

    Applies to Windows 10
    Quiet Hours are times of day when you don't want to be disturbed by notifications. How to set them up:


    • 1. Click the Action Center icon on the taskbar.
    • 2. Click Quiet hours.
      3. Set your Quiet Hours.
    The last (3) seems to suggest there is a setting - but as you - and others- have observed it seems to be just an on/off button now.

    E.g.
    Windows 10: No scheduled Quiet Hours? - Windows Central Forums
    I've not seen Quiet hours on, so can't comment on your other query, sorry.

  3. Local profile issue after upgrading to 1903


    Hi roblinb

    Not listed in the Known.

    Known issues for Windows 10 May 2019 Update version 1903


    As far as Wifi any chance it is Qualcom inside USB adapter, if Qualcom then yes known issue.


    I might create another user (Local) and when if try again see if this issue occurs on both users.

    Would also suggest you run the first 5 steps in this tutorial to see if you have any corruption with current build.

    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image
