    Start-up sounds (Home,SP3)

    I'd like like to add a sound file to play on windows start-up.
    What directory should I copy file into?

    Thanks,

    It doesn't matter. When you open Control Panel, Sounds and click on the element you want to change, the Browse button will let you find the file, wherever it is. See attached.

    To expand on what Al said... make sure that the file you select is in a location that it is not likely to be moved from or be deleted or changed.

    You could create a folder in your My Documents folder call it something like, Sounds and put all the files you plan to use there. Or you can add your files to the folder Windows goes to by default when it looks for media files for system tasks C:WINDOWSMedia.

    Thanks for the feed back.

    I put it in the Media folder and it works great.
