Windows 7: Menu sound effects not working for Windows 7 start menu

Menu sound effects not working for Windows 7 start menu

I upgraded from Windows XP to 7. I have "menu command" and "menu pop-up" sound effects set but they are not working for the Windows 7 start menu. They used to work for XP. It was helpful to hear a sound effect whenever a menu expanded or item was pressed in the start menu. I know this may be a minor problem, but can this be fixed in a future patch or service pack?

You should be able to go into your windows sound menu and set the sounds...

Right Click Desktop > Appearance > Windows Sounds

I have the same problem. But why would you make all menus make a sound then exclude the start menu, the most used menu.
