about sounds

Hi
i was wondering is it possible to add new sound to, for example, "Send to Trash", or, "Move File", like Macintosh? You know what I mean?
Thanks

Take a look at the below tutorial. You should be able to change most sounds from there.

Adding to what JaidynM suggested
You can add any .wav file you like to C:\Windows\Media to save having to browse for files on your computer that may get moved/deleted, and theres lots of online or downloadable converters if your favorite sounds are in the wrong format.

that is not what I meant. i know how to change the sounds, but, i want to add new sounds, like this, when you go in to sounds, right click on desktop-->personalize-->sounds. There is something like "Asterisk", "Windows Logon", "Windows Logoff", "Critical battery Alarm" etc, "Empty Recycle Bin", I want to add, a new sound, when I move file in to Recycle Bin, i want to hear a sound, like Macintosh, or, when I move file from disk drive C to disk drive D, I want to hear sound, is it possible to add (for example) sound to "Move To Trash", or, "Move File"..?
thanks

No I don't think that's possible. You can alter and existing sounds to anything you like but I'm sure you cant just add sounds for actions that aren't already available.
There may be some third party tool to do this but I'm not aware of one.Someone else may know better.

I agree. Unfortunately, there is no option to do such a thing; using the already installed Windows programs anyway. Even if there was a 3rd party app, the scripting required to be able to create a sound for an action would be quite long and difficult.
