For this, it was sufficient to open the Sound Setup window, choose the event in question for which we wanted to change the sound and choose one of the many events with which the system counts. As you may have noticed, in Windows 10 we did not find the options or events of log off, log in or shut down the system.
Therefore, the first thing you need to do to change the start and end sound of Windows 10 is to add these options as program events in the System Sound window.
Steps to change the startup and shutdown sound of Windows 10
To add these options as program events, we will need to make some changes to the registry. It is therefore recommended to make a first Windows 10 registry backup.
Once this is done, in case something does not go as before, we open the registry window and head for the road. HKEY_CURRENT_USER AppEvents EventLabels. There we will have to search for the keys with the name SystemExit, WindowsLogon and WindowsLogoff, which are the ones that relate to the closing and starting and closing events of the system.
That said, we will have to enter each of these registry keys and double-click on the 32-bit DWORD value with the name ExcludeFromCPL that we will find in each of them. By default, they will all be 1, but we have to change it and set to 0 and save the changes.
Simply change these three registry keys to open the System Sound window again by right-clicking the Altavos icon on the taskbar and selecting the corresponding option. Sounds.
In the Sounds tab, we have to check how, in the list of events of the program, we should already see the options of Disconnecting from Windows, connecting to Windows and closing Windows. Therefore, just select each of them and set the desired sound for each of them. In this way, we will have managed to modify the sound of starting and closing the sound of Windows 10 without third-party applications.
