Windows 10 evolves in such a way that certain functionalities of the system have been disabled or removed, one of these is that the sounds for the login, logout and shutdown events are no longer available, this does not mean that it cannot be possible assign a sound again in Windows 10 , we will do this directly from the task scheduler and we will see how to achieve it in a simple way in Windows 10 sounds..


The Windows 10 sounds are known in their great majority they carry with Microsoft almost since its history. Some have evolved, but others survive with the intention of helping us better interpret the actions of the system. The sound of shutting down Windows 10 was well known especially in previous versions like XP.



We also leave you the video tutorial to be able to activate sound when turning off Windows 10..
