INSTALLING SOUNDS ON YOUR PC
(Sounds that you install on your PC as standard sounds must be in the ".wav" format.)

  1. Double-click on the "My Computer" icon.
  2. Open "System [C:]" drive.
  3. Open "Windows" folder.
  4. Open "Media" folder.
  5. Copy sound files from floppy disk into Media folder.
  6. Double-click on the "My Computer" icon.
  7. Open the "Control Panel" folder.
  8. Open "Sounds."
  9. Single click on an "Event."
  10. Choose a sound for that event by clicking the Browse button and selecting a sound from your "Media" folder. (If your computer opens to something other than your Media folder, the pathway is C:/ drive, then "Windows" folder, then "Media" folder).
  11. Repeat Step 10 to assign sounds to other "Events."
