Re: To Turn Fast Boot OFF so that the Windows Start Sound plays upon starting up from a shut down

Jeffrey Shockley

I don’t know if this has been brought up already, but for this to work, you also have to go into Sounds in Control Panel or Settings, not sure what it’s called in Windows 10. But you have to go in there, find the “Sound Schemes”  tab or is it “themes?” I don’t remember exactly, but you have to find the “Play Windows Startup Sound” I think it is checkbox by using Tab and check it. Then, click OK.
Hope this helps,

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
