Change Login and Shutdown Sound in Windows 10

One of the things that I have always liked about the Windows operating system is its customization capacity, thanks to this we can change the icons, sounds, wallpapers… etc… The problem is that today I wanted to change the login sound in the “System Sounds” section and I realized that not only was it not available , I also couldn’t find the option to change the shutdown sound in Windows 10 anywhere . The truth is that it seems impossible to me that an operating system as polished as this does not allow music to be played when starting Windows 10 . Well don’t worry, today in MrAppsGeek we are going to tell youHow to change the shutdown sound in this easy and fast operating system .

How to Change the Logout Sound Windows 10

To change the Windows 10 shutdown sound, the first thing we must do is press the following key combination:

  • Windows+R

The “Run” command window will appear and we will put the following “Regedit.EXE” (without quotes) as in the photo.

It is now where we will enter the log files, do not forget to make a backup copy of the system in case you make a mistake or at least write down the steps that you are going to follow next so that in case of error you can reverse them. Well… let’s get down to business! Once the “Registry Editor” is open, we must go to the following path:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USERAppEventsEventLabels

In this folder we must locate the “SystemExit” folder , we enter inside. Once inside we will see a 32-bit file called ExcludeFromCPL , we will click on it with the right mouse button, a menu will appear, we will click on “Modify” .

Now we must change the “Value Information” from “1” to “0” , then we will click “Accept” , as in the photo.

Now to change the sound when starting Windows 10 you must repeat the previous steps but in these other 2 folders:

Once inside we write “Change System Sounds” and enter inside.
