Here's an article you might find useful. https://www.howtogeek.com/274010/how-to-change-the-windows-10-logoff-logon-and-shutdown-sounds-in-windows-10 Don't get scared off by the use of the word "registry". The changes you'll be making won't break anything if you mess them up. You may get an error if you point to a sound file that doesn't exist (or you mistyped its path), but that shouldn't deter you.

So here’s a dumb question from a Windows 7 user.  If there is no shutdown sound in Windows 10, how can you tell for sure that your computer has shutdown successfully, especially if you have a laptop with no fan or DVD drawer? At least with a desktop, you can usually tell that the fan has stopped running, and the DVD drawer won’t open when you press the eject button, which confirms that the computer has shutdown.

If you have fast startup disabled, you can go to sounds and there you can check the windows startup sound, but you can not get the shutdown sound back, even if you do a registry hack to list the sound it still will not work no matter what sound you assign to it.

Go to start menu, in the search type control panel. Then go to sounds and to the sound schemes tab and configure the sounds the way you want.

Can you get the startup and shut down sounds back in win10 and can they be configured?  If so how?  Thanks.
