    Custom sound set not syncing


    I like to use my own sound effects for Windows and keep them in My Documents. So I right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner and select sounds. Then find and select my own wav files for each event I'd like to use.

    If works for a while, but then reverts back to default.

    I have another PC, a laptop, and would like to use the same sound set on that too - except the laptop does not have the same files on it. I had hoped that the laptop sound theme would sync from the desktop, but clearly not! Could the laptop not having the relevant sound files be the cause of the desktop's sound theme reverting to default?

    Try placing (at first) a copy of the sounds folder in C:\Windows\Media, then setup your sounds how you like them. Note They only stay for the current used theme, when you change to a different theme you'll need to reset your sound.
