  1. Windows 10 startup and shutdown sounds


    Hello.


    I have Windows 10. I want to change the Windows's default startup and shutdown sounds, with the old ones from Windows 95I am nostalgic, I liked them a lot. I tried to use the method to change some registry entries, replace them in Control Panelwith the .wav extension but it didn't work. Also there it is a program to change the sounds, but as I heard this program is harmful in time. So, how can I change them?

    :)

    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.

    No Startup or Shutdown Sound


    An interesting suggestion with partial results.

    I tried to delete the key as directed but it would not let me?

    So I modified the key value from "(value not set)" to 1 and then to 0 and got the same following results for both modified settings:

    Using both methods of shutdown described earlier I did get a startup sound!
    I did not get a shutdown sound or Logon/Logoff sounds.

    So with the value set to 0 once again I tried to delete the key. It would not delete but the value changed back to the original "(value not set)" condition. Upon further testing with this condition reset back to same "(value not set)" I still got the startup sound as the 0 and 1 setting and did not get a Shutdown sound or Logon/Logoff sounds as before.

    Windows 10 seems buggy with inconsistent results. However I did get a startup sound after I modified the values (and attempted to delete) the key you suggested. I can toggle the startup sound now via the control panel mentioned earlier by checking or unchecking the appropriate box. Thank you.

    Post Edit: The "Turn on fast startup (recommended)" box has to be unchecked in Power Options for the startup sound to work under the above conditions. Apparently, checking this does circumvent checking to "Play Windows Startup sound" in Sounds within the Control Panel. I still have not been able to enable a shutdown sound so this thread title remains partially solved.

    I would welcome more expert comments - especially concerning enabling Shutdown sound or Logon/Logoff sounds.
