    Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB

    Can i FORCE or mod windows 10 to play all misc sounds? e.g lock/unlock

    i want to make windows 10 able to play all of its sounds like back in the day, including login and log off sounds, lock and unlock sounds, shutdown sounds and constant startup sound without disabling fastboot. and yes i have did all those registry hacks to show hidden sounds again but they dont work anymore in these newer builds.

    Hi, this looks like the sort of thing you need, but you refer to registry hacks... so these may be ones you've tried. I've no idea of course.

    You might prefer to simply set up your own scheduled task to play a sound - e.g. for log on, lock- you can't set a scheduled task to run on log off.

    Note that with MS continually tweaking and generally simplifying GUI features (less freedom to tweak) it may no longer be possible to do that. What's possible will also be build dependent.

    I've not tried it, so you can see if any work for you and advise.
