    Why does Windows 10 come with hidden log on/start up sounds?


    If you look in C:\Windows\Media, there seems to be some sounds that were created for Windows 10.

    Like Windows Logon.wav. Did Microsoft scrap these sounds? For some reason, the option to choose a Log on or Log Off sound doesn't exist in the "Sounds" settings in the Control Panel.

    You can take "any" sound and name it Log-on and just replace the existing sound in the Media folder
    now your system would play That sound

    simple.....

    Good luck

    But the sound doesn't exist in "Sound" settings. In W7 and Vista, there was a "category" for Logon Sound and Logoff Sound.

    In your previous car, the light switch was on the dash, in the new car it's in the steering wheel....
    Does it really matter how we switch the light on?

    So they have changed their method..... I don't see the issue

    I don't understand what you mean.

    Even if I change something like "User account control sound" to the Log On sound, it won't play during the log in process. It's not synced to that.
