chance to post your Reg tweak file?

most the things worked in Windows 7 will work with Win 8. Thing is you have to test things and see if they work for your machine since no two are setup the same except OEM when first recieved

For those of you that bypass metro and go straight to desktop the "Startup-Logon" sound is muted by default, this

little reg tweak will enable it for you, just like in the good old days of Windows 7.. DP :thumbup



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;Adds a check in box "Play Windows Startup sound" from Control Pnl "Sound" for Windows 8 and 8.1
; 0=enable, 1=disable
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\BootAnimation]
"DisableStartupSound"=dword:00000000
