Why Is It Not Possible To Set Windows Logoff / Logon Sounds

Jan 28, 2016

So in Windows 8, MS removed the ability to have a login/logoff sound. In Windows 10, the same problem persists.

Interestingly enough, under the C:WindowsMedia folder, there is a file called "Windows Logon" which is a brand new sound from Windows 8, also in 10.

The "Windows Logoff Sound" file is the same as Vista/7, so no change there.

HP Envy M7 / Windows Sounds Distorted (all Other Sounds Fine)

Jan 9, 2016

I have a new HP Envy M7 laptop running Windows 10. I have an odd problem where all the stock windows sounds are distorted as if they are being unnecessarily amplified. All other sounds, such as videos, music, movies, etc, are all completely fine. I've tried looking through the windows sounds area, looking at the device properties, and also at the 2 different volume control areas with no luck.

When i say 2 different olume control areas, i mean the volume control icon in the taskbar tray, and also the "Bang & Olufsen" sound control icon in the taskbar tray. Bang & Olufsen apparently provides the audio products for this machine? Anyway, i can see anyplace where the windows sounds are being amplified.

My devices are:

Realtek High Definition audio
nVidia Virtual Audio Device
Intel(R) Display Audio

i have all drivers up-to-date.

Switch Back To PIN From Windows Logon

Jun 18, 2015

The laptop that I use a PIN to log on clearly has on the login screen under the PIN area the option to change to other types of login credentials (i.e., MSID, Local Account), but on another laptop where I changed over to Windows Logon I do not have any such option displayed, nor can I find it in Settings:Accounts:Sign-in Options (though it DOES have there the option to change the PIN and other credential particulars).

Locking Windows Disables Sounds In Applications

Nov 19, 2015

When I lock windows (win + L) and relog back on any application I had running when I locked the account will be muted (browsers aren't affected). The application doesn't appear in windows volume mixer and the only way ive found to get my sound back is to restart the application.

For example, I`m playing fallout 4 I need to leave my computer so I lock it (for a variety of reasons) then I return a minute later and my sound is gone. The only way to get it back is to restart the game. This is pretty annoying for me because I have to somewhat frequently lock my windows while I`m doing things.

Change The Microsoft Account Associated With Logon?

Mar 5, 2016

So we setup a MS account for my daughter, using her email address, but accidentally put in my birthdate so it got created as an adult account. This means I can't add the account to my "Family" so I can setup parental controls. According to Microsoft, there is no way to change an adult account into a child account. The only thing I can do is delete the account and then wait 60 days before recreating it. This means that in the mean time she doesn't have a MS account to use to log on so I'm kind of screwed.

The only thing I came up with is to create a dummy MS account for her to use for 60 days until I can recreate it using her email account like it is now. Is that even possible? I would need to associate her current local account with the dummy account and then be able to change it to reassociate it with the new account once I recreate it after 60 days.

Logon Screen Flashing / Busy

Aug 10, 2015

Problem with the logon screen with windows 10. I upgraded on the morning of Saturday 8th August, without any serious problems. However, later on in the afternoon, I had to do a restart, after a virus/malware scan and removal of infections. The OS was updated at this point, after which a serious problem occurred. Once the OS reached the logon screen, it started flashing on and off between Logon screen and time/date start up picture, with the cursor showing busy. It also reported an error message to do with LogonUI .

I had no way to Logon, or to open task manager, so i had to boot into safe mode, and attempt various problem solving solutions read elsewhere for this issue on the net. None of these worked, so i had to roll back to Windows 7 for the time being. Should i upgrade again, this issue will have to be resolved.

Finally, though, i'm led to believe that LogonUI is malware, and not an important system file, but should it be removed, would this be the cause of the issue?

Sep 3, 2015

I have a domain based on samba 4.1.17-Debian ... I bought 10 laptops with W7 preinstalled .... With some fiddling in the registry the can successfully join my domain and everything works perfectly.....

But ... after upgrading those PC to W10 ( with automatic upgrade) i cannot logon anymore on domain. (local logon is ok) ... I get the message " no access server is currently available to open the session " ( translated from french , so the english message can be slightly different...)

Note that with a local session I can see and access the shared folders (mydomainsharedfolder )on the domain pdc, meaning that i can eliminate an authentication or  dns problem ...) Same behaviour on all laptops...

Remastering Sounds On PC

Sep 10, 2015

Is there anyway that I can "remaster" sounds on my pc.By "remaster" I mean...like setting the volume of a song e.g. to 90-95% (so I won't lose any frequency- sound) and then set the volume again to sth like 30% (cause my headphones are too loud).I've seen some digital music amps with this feature and i was wondering if this is also possible on the pc. I want this for several sounds ,not just songs..

NumLock Status At Logon From Cold Boot

Dec 9, 2015

I chose to log in use the PIN option. I like typing with the num pad.

At the log on screen Num Lock was always off.

1. Checked the BIOS settings:
Ensured that the NumLock status in the BIOS was set to enabled

2. Modified the registry a few times
Key: HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTControl PanelKeyboard
I set the String Value: InitialKeyboardIndicators
to 2
then I tried 80000002
then I tried 2147483650

So I have partial success, where NumLock is enabled after a restart, but it is not enabled after a cold-boot.

Customization :: Remove Or Change Logon Screen Background?

Aug 21, 2015

I would assume people may want to tinker with their logon screen background picture. (an example of this screen, to clarify, is below)

This is the picture that is behind the logon screen, which is by default the Windows 10 hero wallpaper. If you would like to change this image to your accent color, here's how

WARNING: To do this option, you will have to mess with registry settings. As you may know, registry settings influence the way Windows works on your machine. Therefore, if you do something incorrectly, you may have to reinstall Windows. Proceed with caution.

The first step is to open Run (+R) and type regedit

Once Registry Editor opens, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsSystem. There, make a new DWORD value called DisableLogonBackgroundImage and set the value to 1 to change it to your accent color. If you ever wish to revert this change, setting it to 0 will revert it back to the 'Hero' image.

Restart and your logon screen background will now be your accent color that you have selected. If it changes, the color of your logon screen will change as well.

Customization :: How To Disable The Secure Logon Background Image

Oct 10, 2015

At day 1 of the windows 10 release my Secure Logon background was a specified picture, the same picture as my desktop background. Since Windows automatically updated it has been changed to a picture.

How do I get the picture back?

To be clear, I want this specifically for the Secure logon screen (where it shows "Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete" to unlock), not the standard logon screen.

Logon Process Initialization Failure (occasionally While Logging Off)

Aug 25, 2015

I get the message: "Interactive logon Initialization process has failed." This occurs only once in a while, while login off from a user. I get a black screen with a dialogue box with the message and an OK button. I can't click the OK button and need to do a reset because the computer is frozen.

In the event log I get the following message: ID4005: Logon process from Windows has suddenly ended. (translation from Dutch). Also, a refresh doesn't work. I did a full fresh re-install of windows 10 but the problem remains. Maybe a certain program I'm running?

No Accounts On Logon Screen (Every) Recovery Option Fails

Dec 20, 2015

Windows 10 x64 had been working fine. Yesterday, I noticed the system had gone to the spinning circle... I walked away and gave it overnight, but no change. After reboot, I get to the login screen for 30 seconds or so - with no user accounts showing - then it goes to the solid blue screen with spinning dot circle. I suspect the latest update was applied "while I was sleeping".

What I've tried:

Rebooting (Goes to same place)
Safe mode (same login screen - no user accounts listed)
System Restore (No restore points - argh! why?!?!)
System Image Recovery (No system images found)
Startup Repair (allows either admin to authenticate, says "Diagnosing your pc" , then fails) -- logs to d:windowssystem32logfilessrtsrtrail.txt, open in notepad, shows no errors, "OS booted successfully"
Command prompt (works - but what should I look at?)
Go back to previous build - save my files (fails at about 40%) - I would prefer not to delete my files. (though they are backed up)

How To Use Microsoft Email Account To Identify A User At Logon

Sep 7, 2015

Just upgraded my daughter's Compaq CQ-71 laptop to Windows 10. I had used my Microsoft account (email) to set up the initial account on the machine and this of course pulled over my profile picture etc. However, this question is about subsequent accounts created on the machine.

I had created a local account for my daughter while still on Windows 7 but now the machine is on Windows 10, how can I add a Microsoft account email to my daughter's login details so that her profile is shared between machines?

Why Does Come With Hidden Log On / Start Up Sounds

Aug 18, 2015

If you look in C:WindowsMedia, there seems to be some sounds that were created for Windows 10.

Like Windows Logon.wav. Did Microsoft scrap these sounds? For some reason, the option to choose a Log on or Log Off sound doesn't exist in the "Sounds" settings in the Control Panel.

Customization :: Can't Use Custom Sounds

Apr 16, 2015

I use a lot of custom sounds on my computer, they are all saved in .wav format. Up to this build of Windows 10TP they have worked.

But since updating to version 10049 they don't work anymore. I can play them from the folder they are in, but if I try and add them to Windows Sounds through the Sounds control panel the icons turn yellow and they won't play.

This may go along with Cortana not talking in this version, and I've found that the Text to Speech function in this version of Windows 10 doesn't function either.

How To Identify Notification Sounds

Oct 29, 2015

I have a desktop PC (see specs) that is persistently giving two different notification sounds but not showing a banner in the notification area to tell me what is warning/notifying me of. I think I have determined what events are being triggered by changing each notification sound in turn to a distinctive chime that is not used elsewhere. The two events concerned are "Device Connect" and "Device Disconnect". Strangely I seem to receive many more disconnect notifications than connects.

The sounds spoil my enjoyment when listening to music or watching movies etc. Obviously I can switch the sounds off by selecting "none" as the sound to play with these events but, just as obviously, I would like to know what is constantly connecting and/or disconnecting.

I am connected to a home network but I'm connected via ethernet cable and am not attaching or detaching any other equipment when the sounds occur. I'm a bit worried that I'm being scanned over the internet but I'm connected via a cable modem/router. Is there any way to show the reason for these notifications?

BTW, I'm using Windows Defender and Firewall together with the paid version of Malwarebytes.

Accounts :: Hide Or Remove User Image At Logon Window

is there a way to hide or remove the user picture at the login screen?

I've managed to change the background image of the login screen, but that big circle that shows a picture of the user is pointless and ruins my image.
