Double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon in the Control Panel window (refer to Task 9, “Changing How the Mouse Works,” if you need help opening the Control Panel window). Also you need to change to Classic view.

Click the Sounds tab. The Sounds and Audio Devices Properties dialog box opens.

In the Program events list, click the sound event you want to change.

INTRODUCTION

When you perform certain actions in Windows XP, you might hear a sound. For example, you hear a sound when Windows XP is started. You might hear a sound when an alert box is displayed. You can stick with the default sounds, or you can select a different sound to use for each key Windows event.


TIP

Select a Scheme

If you have sound schemes, you can select a set of sounds by displaying the Schemes drop-down list in the Sounds tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices dialog box. Select the scheme you want, and then click OK.


Display the Sounds drop-down list to select the sound that you want to assign to that event.

Click OK to accept the changes and to close the dialog box.
