How Do I Add A Windows Program Event ...

In the Windows 'Sound' menu, 'Sounds' tab is a list of 'Program' Events, I do not see the 'delete' event listed. How do I add it? My goal is to assign a custom sound to this very common Windows function.

-thank you

There's loads of info on this if you search in Google.
Here's a couple that I found:
Windows custom sound events - Super User
and
windows - Adding my own application events in Control Panel -> Sounds - Stack Overflow

Thx, I did google, did not find 'loads', I visit the links you posted, one is dated 2003 and not sure if applicable. In either case, both were above my tech-scope (involving registry mods). I fear I must now request a 'for dummies' solution to this.

I'm sorry but I do not know a way of doing this without editing the registry. Perhaps others here may be able to assist!

I hope so. In the tutorials many gurus often create .bat files. I believe some of these alter the registry to help out such as my illiterate-self. Thx for reply.

Marc, You are certainly not "illiterate." Full marks to you for realizing your limitations. You are correct in saying that often a .bat file can be produced. Brink, one of our Administrators is the expert on this. Perhaps he will find your post!

EDIT: Looks like you have already had the answer on this here:

Shawn's reply was not definitive, it left some hope, which is why I started this topic.

That's definitive enough for me!
