Customize default shutdown logon & logoff sounds in windows 8

Customize default shutdown logon & logoff sounds in windows 8

IF the customer annoyed of the shutdown, logon or logoff sounds and needs to change it then follow this article.
Below screen shot of windows 8 show that Windows Logon, Logoff and Shutdown Program Events aren’t listed in Sounds.
Let me go ahead perform the necessary changes in order to change the sound setting on your system
Step1. Registry Hack for Sound Events
Before doing any Registry change, make sure you take back up of registry.
1. First use the Keyboard shortcut Windows Key + R to bring up the Run line and type: regedit and hit Enter.

2. Registry Editor opens up and you need to go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\EventLabels under EventLabels you’ll see a list of subfolders for different sound events for Windows 8.

3. Scroll down the list and click WindowsLogOff. In the right pane, you’ll see the key ExludeFromCPL. Double click on it and change the value to 0 and click OK.

4. Repeat the exact same steps for the SystemExit and WindowsLogoff subfolders. In the end, SystemExit, WindowsLogoff and Windows Logon subfolder ExludeFromCPL key values will each be set to 0. When you’re done, close out of Registry Editor.

Step2. Customize Logoff, Logon and Shutdown Sounds

Now from the Desktop, right click the Sound icon on the Taskbar and select Sounds. Or hitWindows Key + W to bring up Setting Search and type: sounds.

Then select Change System Sounds under the search results.
Now you’ll see the entries in the Program Events list, and can customize them like you would in previous versions of Windows.
