    windows 10 default sounds no longer working

    The speakers do work in other apps such as video or YouTube or online films or when I double click a wav file in the C:\Windows\media location where the Windows Default looks for sounds, but only do not work with Windows Program Events such as found in the Windows Default scheme found in the "Sounds" tab regarding events such as "Asterisk", "Calendar Reminder", etc., etc.
    I have even reinstalled the audio driver but to no avail.
    This most definitely has something to do with the speakers not engaging for any Windows notifications. Otherwise, the speakers engage with any other app.

    Hi, have you checked they are enabled in the Volume Mixer?
