In Windows 10, there are a number of options which you can use to change sounds for different system events, configure output and input devices, and more. In modern versions of Windows 10, many options related to sounds were moved to the Settings app, so it takes some time to open the classic applet. In this article, we will see how it can be done quickly.
The volume mixer feature in Windows since Vista has always allowed the user to change the volume level for individual apps and devices. However, in Windows 10, there was a problem: Universal (Metro) apps were not included in the mixer's list of sources, so it wasn't possible to adjust the volume level or mute apps installed from the Store. Finally, Windows 10 "Fall Creators Update" solves this issue.
When Windows 10 shows a notification, e.g. when you need to update your Defender signatures or need to perform some action related to system maintenance, a sound is played by default. Many readers asked me via Facebook and email how to change this sound. Thanks to the new Settings app, which has many options from the classic Control Panel (but not everything yet), this simple operation has become very confusing. Here is what you need to do.
The recently leaked Windows 10 build 10074 comes with a new set of sounds. Interested users can try these sounds right now. Here you go.
