Changing System Sounds

When you use the default Setup options, Windows assigns sounds to some system events. For example, Windows plays a tune each time you start up and shut down. It also beeps, dings, or chimes when new mail arrives, when you encounter an error message, or when you successfully download a file from the Internet.

You can change these settings so that a different sound bite plays for a particular event. Only sound files that use the WAV format (with the .wav extension) can be associated with Windows events. To add your own WAV files to those included with Windows, you must store them in C:\Windows\Media.
