Windows 10: Sounds still cannot be customized in Win10 (2016, July)
Sounds still cannot be customized in Win10 (2016, July)
I copied all of my themes over from my Win7 machine, but regardless of whether I try to tweak old themes or create new ones, the "Sounds" are NOT customizable. You get a choice of "Windows default" or "No sounds"... When is this going to be fixed in Win10? (This is true as of Jul 23, 2016)...
The Win7 sounds might not carry over, but when I create a theme, with custom sounds, and .wav files and post it here: Solved Windows 10 Themes created by Ten Forums members - Windows 10 Forums
They do carry over.
Note: except for the very first few(which were created on Windows 8.1) all themes were created using Windows 10.
You could try getting ahold of the Win7 sounds files and folders, and pasting them in C:\Windows\Media. That's how I add custom .wav files, then just use Control Panel\Sounds and create my sound theme, mixing & matching.
I have transferred my themes over from Vista>Win 7>Win 8/8.1> Win 10 with no problem, if you transfer the actual Windows theme file as well any folders connected with the theme then clicking on the theme will set the sounds.
All my created themes are in the documents folder & once the above file is clicked & theme is set I can choose it anytime.
I adore my themes, made them up myself using wallpapers found on various webpages or MS own wallpapers, created icons & cursors too.

I wonder what will happen if I install Windows 7 AFTER July 28th 2016.
Will I be able to use Windows 7 just as before without the nagging to be updated to Windows 10?
thanks in advance for any answers.
I have both Windows 7 and 8.x retail licenses.
They have now been used up by upgrading to Windows 10 (both as hosts and as vm's).
A few questions:
1) Where can I find Microsoft information as to what will happen with these licenses after July...
Looks like the preview (insider) program will be ongoing for the foreseeable future
Build 10532 (the latest) is set to expire on 16 JULY 2016 so nice long testing periods.
