Giving Windows 98 a Voice: Assigning Sounds to Events

As you work with Windows 98, you hear various sounds emanating from your speakers. These sounds always correspond to particular events. There's that relaxing, New Age–like music when you start Windows 98; there's the short, sharp shock of a sound when a warning dialog box pops up; and there's a nice little chime when you exit Windows 98.

If you're getting tired of the same old sounds, however, Windows 98 lets you customize what you hear by assigning different WAV files to these events. There also are a couple of dozen other events to which you can assign sounds. This section shows you how it's done.
