  1. Windows 10 Login/Logoff sound change: not working


    So I recently turned on startup sounds of Windows 10, and thought, hey, I'll customize my sounds! So then I download the Windows XP startup sound for login and Windows 8 startup sound for logoff, both as .wav files. First, I went to the registry editor to tweak the login/logoff sound settings(I can provide the registries if needed). Then, I went to the "change system sounds" screen, found "Windows logon" and "Windows logoff"(the exact wording may vary), and changed the sounds. I store the files on OS:/Windows/media, and when I hit the "test" button, the sounds played perfectly. So I went on the control panel and disabled "fast boot", clicked apply, and closed the panel. Then I hit "apply" and "OK" on the system sounds screen. By default on Windows 10, the login sound was supposed to be the Windows 7/Vista sound, and no shutdown sound(I enabled the shutdown/logoff sounds, but it doesn't play with default settings, obviously). Now, I restarted my computer, and it still only played the default startup/login sound, which was still the Win7/Vista sounds. I figured it takes a restart or two, maybe a bit of time. So I restarted a couple of times and gave it an hour. Then, I shut down the system. Still no logoff sound. I started the computer, but it only played the default sounds. I checked my settings, and they were still the same(correct) as to how I had applied the settings. I ran the troubleshooter(which found no problems) as well as tested the sounds again(which still works fine). So I moved the .wav files to the "media" folder, where all the other sounds were. Nope. So then I thought my file was incompatible, so I tried some of the preinstalled sounds, too. Still no luck. Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help.

    :)

    Logon and Logoff sounds not working.


    I've already done the registry changes to make these events show in the sounds / sounds window.

    I've assigned the custom sounds to them I've been using in W7 for years and the sounds play when it click the "test" button but, the sounds do not play when I actually logoff or logon *Sad Help!

    PS I also use a sound from my Bloodrayne set for "Empty Recycle Bin" and it works fine.

    Windows logoff sound

    my Windows logoff sound is longer than 10 seconds so I keep getting the notice that the logoff sounds is preventing my computer from shutting down. All the solutions I've found so far simply state 'pick a different logoff sound that is less than 10 seconds
    or simply don't have a logoff sound. Those answers are not acceptable. I want to keep my current logoff sound but keep Windows from displaying that annoying message. How do I do that?
