Registry Editing Tips

Add Sounds to Application Events

Windows comes with a bunch of sound events where a wav file will play when an action is done. If you want to add sound events to program actions, you have to crank up the registry editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps There are two folders, .Default and Explorer . Click on Apps with the right mouse button. Choose New, Key. The name of the key must be the name of the .EXE file you want sounds for. For better reading change the key Default from "none" to the name of the application. Click on the key you created with the right mouse button. Choose New, Key named Open . Create another new key name called Close Go to control panel \ sound events. There is a new item and two subitems, Open program and Close program, for the program you just added to the registry. Add sound files to them. The next time you start/close the EXE file the sound will play.
