as you can remember, Windows XP has a notification sound which is displayed when a notification pops up. In Windows 8/10 Microsoft created new notification events. So, my question is, what registry keys would I need to modify if I want XP style notifications (with sound) or if is it possible to add the new Windows 8+ notifications events with sound?

Copy the following text into notepad and save as .reg file, and than apply it

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\SystemNotification\.current]
@="C:\\Windows\\Media\\chord.wav"

You can swap C:\\Windows\\Media\\chord.wav with path to any other .wav file you want (use double \)
