Tweaking your Sound Scheme

Are you tired of the sounds you hear when different events happen on your computer (such as an error, getting mail, starting up, shutting down, etc.). You can change the sounds that are played when events happen by modifying your 'Sound Scheme'. You do this by assigning a different .WAV files to each event.
  • Open the Control Panel folder (under the Start menu), and then double-click the 'Sounds And Audio Devices' applet.
  • Click the Sounds tab
  • Choose the 'Program Event' that you add, change, or remove the associated sound.
  • Press the Browse button, and then navigate to the new sound (i.e.: C:\Windows\Media) to associate with the program event and select it. You can press the Play button in the bottom left corner of the dialog to hear the sound.
  • Press the OK button to save your new sound scheme
