Windows 11/10 startup sounds are preinstalled on your PC or laptop. To change from the default, you only have to download one of the custom Windows sound themes below and save it as a new sound scheme.
You can also save the sound scheme with a name of your choice. It can now be accessed from a drop-down menu. Alternatively, if your downloaded RAR file contains a theme pack, just double-click it, and the new theme will be installed along with its entire set of sounds.
You can recreate the same magic on your latest Windows 11 and 10 systems and listen to those classic sound effects all over again. Apart from them, you can also change Windows 95 to be your startup sound.
There are many users who enjoy merging the functionality of a Windows 11 system with the themes and sound schemes of other operating systems. If you crave Linux sounds for standard program events, we have a handy collection of Ubuntu sounds. These include popup notifications, shutdown, startup, disconnections, new emails, and so forth.
Mac sound effects are on an altogether different volume level. The same loudness can be transferred to your most recent Windows device with one of these alert sounds resembling the classic macOS actions.
You will get different sound themes, such as the mouse scrolling slowly, key presses, and a complete navigation through trackpad movement. There are further customizations of Windows logon and exit that tend to resemble the Mac logon/exit sounds.
The different sounds in the Mario theme include the front door level, kicks and jumps, when Mario gets a coin, and when he dies. Each downloadable sound has faithfully reproduced in the best way what the Mario franchise has to offer. Mario sounds happen to blend excellently with modern arcade games, which makes these a must have for your personal collection.
If you like to relax to the sound of metal objects clanging against anvils, wheels squeaking, and gears meshing with each other, Gears of War 3 is just what you need for your Windows laptop. Personally, this sound scheme is my number one favorite on this list.
All the sounds have a Transformers-like quality in terms of distortion and loud pitch. Apart from a generic robot voice, the edition also has computer voices generated by science fiction movies, and there is one brief audio of how artificial intelligence is supposed to sound.
Anime lovers usually like soft reaction sounds, such as sighs, weird noises, whooshes, and plucked strings to convey emotions. This small but handy collection of anime sounds recreates the desired vibes to make your anime avatar come to life in the form of mouse clicks and pop-up notifications.
The present anime compilation was created by DeviantArt user Shiroo39 and uses Madobe Yuu sounds, as her voice sounds similar to Madobe Touko. The sounds have been defined for various Windows activities, such as a device connecting and disconnecting, system notifications, user account controls, new mail, and restore up and down.
We round off our collection of Windows sound themes with aerial sounds produced by Microsoft Flight Simulator. These are stunningly realistic and involve the sound effects of aircraft, cockpits, engines, and thrust noises. The sound scheme is available with the official Windows themes collection.

*Bip is not actually a sound file. It calls to hardware to make a noise using a simple sound command. So far, OSX refuses to use it as a System Sound, but it will work as an alert in other Apps (i.e. Mail).
**NewBip is a recording of Bip using wiretap. the original Bip is still included to be true to the original intention of the Classic Sound Pack (after all, it is possible that hardware beeps on different machines may sound different).

Miles Sound System (MSS), formerly known as Audio Interface Library (AIL), is a sound software system primarily for video games and used mostly as an alternative for low-end audio chipsets. It uses little CPU time while providing adequate audio output. It was originally a middleware driver library for soundcards to use in DOS applications when no viable alternative was available. Epic Games Tools (formerly RAD Game Tools) acquired the technology from Miles Design in 1995.
The Miles Sound System was used in its history by over 7,000 video games across 18 platforms. Computer Gaming World stated in 1994 that "Many of the game publishers have decided to support only those sound cards which are supported by the Miles drivers", especially the Sound Blaster.
Dear Community, I am using a fresh installation of Windows Server 2012R2 Essentials, I'm working with it directly on the machine. I noticed, that some system sounds, for example the USB-related sounds, or the general notification sound are played properly, but the sound indicating a new dialog (usually an error dialog, for example when providing wrong input to the Run dialog) and the sound indicating a wrong key press (for example pressing a letter in a directory in File Explorer, where there is no such file starting with that letter, or hitting enter in the empty Run dialog) aren't played at all. All these events are marked by a system sound in Windows XP/7/8/10. I am visually impaired, and these sounds are a much quicker indication for me about any kind of events, than waiting for my screen reader to spell it out. I updated the system to latest, updated all drivers to latest, and configured sound events on the Control panel in the sound schemes section. I would like to ask, could someone help me please, what could cause this issue, and what options do I have to enable these sounds played on the above mentioned events? Thank you in advance.
Stardock released the next-generation version of its Windows® sound scheme manager, SoundPackager 10, today. With SoundPackager, Windows users can instantly change the default sounds on their computer with themed sound schemes called sound packages.
SoundPackager 10 adds cloud access to thousands of different sounds, along with a number of all-new sound packages designed to give Windows users additional choices in how their PC sounds. Users can also create their own sound packages to share with others via an in-app editor.
"At this point we think a lot of Windows 10 users are ready for some variance in their PC sounds," said Brad Wardell, CEO of Stardock. "SoundPackager 10 not only includes several professionally produced alternative sound schemes for Windows, but also direct access to literally thousands of sounds created by users across the world."
1) Make sure thatthe speakers are turned on and the volume is somewhat up (not all the way down)and not muted.2) In Quicken ensure that in Edit / Preferences / Setup "Turn on QuickenSounds" has a checkmark. Restart Quicken if you had to make achange.3) Make sure that in Control Panel / Sound / Sounds tab the active Sound Schemestill contains the Quicken sound files. If the sound scheme was improperlymodified by some other software (or Windows) update, find a different sound schemewhich contains the Quicken sounds and make that the active sound scheme.
Thankyou for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I doapologize for the issue you're having. How long has this been happening? Did you recently update the program or reinstall it? Are there any particular sounds that are missing or all of them. I would double check to see if you have sounds enabled as well. You can do so across the top by going edit > preferences > setup. Here make sure you have it enabled as well.
PulseAudio is a sound server system for POSIX OSes, meaning that it is a proxy for your sound applications. It is an integral part of all relevant modern Linux distributions and is used in various mobile devices, by multiple vendors. It performs advanced operations on sound data as it passes between your application and hardware. Things like transferring audio to a different machine, changing the sample format or channel count, or mixing several sounds into one input/output, are easily achieved using PulseAudio.
Importing and exporting whole sound schemes becomes handy if you want to apply your schemes to different computers or setup your system anew and don't want to copy the whole Windows theme. Doing so proves trickier as one might think though, since sound schemes are not saved as some kind of file or package as one might think.
First off, to create a custom sound scheme, head to the Control Panel and open the Hardware and Sound Options. In the Sound menu, click on Change system sounds. Leave the applied scheme as it is and instead change its components by selecting one of the listed items and browsing for a new sound file, which has to be in the .wav format. For simplicity's sake, put all your custom sound files into the C:\Windows\Media folder prior to setting them since they have to be in the exact same folder on the system you import them. 2b1af7f3a8
