Choosing Your System Sounds
Windows Vista plays sounds in response to a wide variety of events, such as when
you log on, when you open or close programs, or when you type an asterisk. Pro-
grams you install, such as America Online, can have their own sounds as well. You
can configure all of these sounds and manage them collectively using sound schemes.
A sound scheme is simply a set of sounds that you want to use together.
Windows Vista has two standard sound schemes: No Sounds, which turns off all
program sounds except the Windows Startup sound played when you log on; and
Windows Default, which is configured to use the standard Windows sounds.
Selecting a sound scheme
You can configure your system to use an existing sound scheme by completing the
following steps:
1. Right-click an open area of the desktop and then select Personalize.
2. Click the Sounds link to display the Sound dialog box with the Sounds tab
selected, as shown in Figure 3-16.
3. Use the Sound Scheme listbox to choose the sound scheme to use.
4. Click OK to save your settings.
Customizing your sound scheme
You can configure your system to use a customized sound scheme by completing the
following steps:
1. Right-click an open area of the desktop and then select Personalize.
2. Click the Sounds link to display the Sound dialog box with the Sounds tab
selected, as shown in Figure 3-16.
3. In the Program list, sounds are organized according to the program to which they
relate and the related event that triggers the sound. To preview a sound for a par-
ticular event, select the event in the Program list and then click the Test button.
