how to enable windows 10 startup sound

A simple way.

If you have recently decided to abandon Windows 7 in favor of Windows 10, then you are certainly getting used to the many new features.

It literally separates you from activating the sound at system startup few clicks. Do not think that Microsoft developers went to the easy way and did not add the appropriate audio files. They added it, but it was turned off by default, so that the Windows 10 user had the impression of a faster booting, even more minimalistic system. Let's turn it on.

1. Right click on the Start Menu and select the drop down list "Settings".

Curiosity: the sound accompanying Windows 10 boot is the sound from … Windows NT 6.x (Vista 8.1).

As you can see Microsoft for some strange reason completely unnecessarily hides the option of enabling the sound. At the moment, there is no easy way to replace the default audio theme, but maybe in one of the upcoming updates the Redmond giant will add the appropriate function.

How do you like the sound of the Windows 10 autostart? Will you turn it on or would you prefer to stay running in a way "noiseless"?
