Windows 7: [Windows Sounds](Empty Recycling bin sound) (permanent DELETE TOO?)

14 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 (v6.1.7601.23537)
[Windows Sounds](Empty Recycling bin sound) (permanent DELETE TOO?)

I setup NEW custom [WINDOWS SOUNDS] for my PC/Laptop...

Using FIRST wav files I downloaded, made from Portal 2 (valve) sounds...

THEN I converted many notification ringtones from my phone...
from mp3 to wav using my favorite Music Player Foobar2000! lol
I changed most of the basic Windows Sounds MUCH TO MY DELIGHT!!

so to the point... lol
I have the Windows Recycling bin set to

I have attached said wav file in an RAR Archive..
and all of them in the 2nd archive...

NOW back to the point... while I can set the sound for when the
recycling bin is emptied..

!!! lol


I am figuring some kind of Windows Registry HACK??!

OK I have found a few things...
FOUND the reg location for the sounds schemes..

with help from Google SEARCH and


here is the key for the default recycling bin sounds..
as extracted from a reg backup...

@="C:\\Windows\\media\\P2_windows recycle.wav.wav"

@="C:\\Windows\\media\\Windows Recycle.wav"
NOW is it even possible to add a custom reg KEY entry for making sounds occur when I permanently DELETE a FILE/FOLDER??

I FOUND this..
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\Windows.del ete]

BUT I cannot add a test value:
  • sound
  • sounds
  • etc??
PERMISSION DENIED.. ofc uggh.. M$!!!!!!!!!!
I tried changing permissions DENIED TOO!! M$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
STRIKE THAT.. had to take ownership first..! lol

trying the following values with..
data ="C:\Windows\Media\P2_windows recycle.wav"
  • sound = failed
  • sounds = failed
  • DeleteSound = failed

Attached Files
File Type: rar P2_windows recycle.wav.rar (150.0 KB, 3 views)
File Type: rar wav__WindowsSoundsReplacements.rar (3.71 MB, 1 views)
