How to make Windows make a sound when done pasting

Q: How to make Windows make a sound when done pasting

I often copy and paste very large files, 50 gigs and so on and it takes a very long time.

Is there a way for windows to make a sound when the copying is done?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: How to make Windows make a sound when done pasting

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to make Windows make a sound when done pasting

Well I reckon there would be AH because I am thinking you mean like when malware scan ends one usually gets a tone to let you know it is done. But off the cuff I am not really sure.

I have recently changed my browser from Chrome to Edge. With Chrome I had a Gmail Notifier icon showing when I opened my mail program. From this I had an option to have a sound play when incoming emails arrived. (Options/Notifications/Default Sound Notification/User Defined Sound/Browse) and then I could choose my sound. With Edge, I cannot see a Gmail Notifier and as a result am unable to set a choice of sound to notify me of new mail. I have downloaded Gmail Notifier but can't find a way around my problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
We have guests laptops at school for everyone but they keep making changes on the computer.
How can i make Windows to ask for admin password when trying to make changes in the computer and when trying to run the installer?
Google does not give me right results.

A:Make Windows ask for admin password when trying to make changes

I don't think you can stop users from making all changes. However if the account that they are using is a standard user account then it will ask for a administrator password when ever the UAC prompt comes up for system changes and installs.

Maybe you could take a drive image of the computer when it is in the state that you want it, then restore it when needed

A:I just reinstalled Windows XP and now my speakers dont make ANY sound they are on too

Yes there should be sound card drivers that came with either the motherboard (on-board sound card) or your pci add-on sound card such as Creative Soundblaster Infinity series. Do you have a pci sound card installed? If so just go to manufacture's website and dl the last drivers.

Hi. I just want to know if there is a hack that will make the print spooler start in safe mode. I'm using Windows Vista 64 bit. If there is no hack currently, could someone tell me of an easy way to create one? I know there was one for xp, but it didn't work for Windows Vista. Thanks.

That didn't make any sense to me since I've been on forums where you could edit your post at any time. Could an admin fix that please? Thanks.

Previously when I was using Windows 7, the system restore points were created automatically whenever I installed a new SW or made other similar system change. But it seems not the case in Win 8 any more.

I am a SW developer. Although I normally test our SW on virtual machines, but some other time I just install part of it directly on the development machine. The SW of course might have some problem. Today when I tried to restore my system to a status right before I installed the problem SW, I just found out that I don't have these restore points. The system indeed created some restore points automatically, but those don't seem to cover all the changes I made to the system. Is there a way to configure it? Thanks!

A:How to make Win8 make restore points automatically

Maybe your restore point disk space allocation is inadequate to hold all restore points that might be created automatically. My record of restore points implies that restore points are being created for all SW installations, but the record does not go very far back in time.

In Windows 7 Pro, I want to have a second copy of my userkey.psw Password Reset Disk file, with the same password: one to keep in the building, the other to take offsite.

If I generate a second userkey.psw file using the Win7 utility, will it override an earlier one, even if the password has not changed?

Hi,

Ghost, let me make sure before I make things worse.

If I add a second hard drive temporarily as a "slave" and use Ghost to clone the master to the slave, am I correct in assuming the following:

if I have problems with the original hard drive, I could reformat the drive add the "ghosted" drive as a slave and with Ghost transfer the "cloned" info to the original HD?

if I had imaged instead of cloned I could do the same as above?

If my assumptions are not correct or if there is a better way what should I do?

Hi.
I have two hdds (500gb 7200rpm) in my laptop and have 260gb of data on the second one. I wanted to create a partition for games at the beggining of the 2nd drive (the left side) as i heard it increased performance to put games in anoher drive and at the beggining of the drive.

My question is:
Will it make difference to make a partition at the beginning or at the end of this drive when it comes to gaming performance?
Will option three help me with this?

My cousin showed me one game in the same drive installed in the 1st of four partitions of a 500gb 7200rpm (the same i have) performing with 3-5 fps more than that game installed in the 4th partition of that same drive....

Any thoughts?

I dont know... any thoughts?, or maybe just a bug in the version installed in the 4th partition?

my hp 6500 officejet is sending out real small type [letters]and numbers. My glasses are strong enough to read what my printer is putting out help needed as usuall thanks for anything. bob s i have the page site type ;increased to 150% but its not printing that size type

A:Can anyone tell me how to make too make printer letters bigger

If you are trying to print out something like webpage content, you can change the font size in Print Preview by changing to 150% or whatever and then select the number of pages to view.

Experiment with the sizes up from Shrink to fit then change the number of pages you want to view it in and you will see what the text output will look like in the varying number of pages and then you can select how many pages for what will suit your eyes.

If you leave the number of pages at 1 then it will probably revert to Shrink to fit and so print out in the smaller font size.

Once you are happy with how you think it will print, then click on the printer icon in the top left of the menu bar.

If you are printing a doc from a word processing program, then set the font size and type prior to creating the document within the program, otherwise you will need to highlight all of the text first before you can change to how you want it, and changing those settings after you've created the doc may not stick.

Hello Please be patient I know enough about computers but not the terms or anything. I had vista at first then got a virus long story short my uncle removed everything then put XP back on. I dont really understand why its important for a drive to be a certain letter my hard drive H the removeanle disk is C Im working from home and was told I need my internet explorer and certain things on my C drive. First off what is the difference and is this possible Ive been up for hours looking but I am not sure and cant get a hold of my uncle. Please let me know what needs to be done. Thank you all in advance.

A:How to make my to make my C which says removeable disk to my H drive?

It's easy to change the removable drive's drive letter name.

Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Managment

Right-click the removable drive's graph and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths" and change the letter.

Do not change the drive letter of your boot drive. If you do, none of your programs will work, your computer may not even boot, and you'll be reinstalling XP all over again.

The time to deal with the boot drive not being C: was before/during the installation. Now it's too late, unless you want to reinstall. It's inconvenient and annoying, but almost everything will work just fine. I've read about some programs not working, but have never seen it first-hand. It's possible it never happens, and the people that are saying this are just repeating some kind of "urban myth".

If you HAVE to change the boot drive, you'll need to reinstall XP.

A:Ghost, let me make sure before I make things worse.

i have a dedicated partition on my machine for drive image files, which are essentially just the same as norton ghost files.

everytime I make some major changes I give it a bit of time to see if everything is fine, then I update the images. I usually keep the image before that as well, so that if something emerges later I can go back to that.

I've seen a single update from windowsupdate.microsoft.com make my machine unbootable; i've seen a single updated driver trash the whole installation.

what you are doing is wise.

A:Mod Eye Candy: Will it make the cut or make me angry?

Ok first of all did you buy the dell yet? If you didn't I would suggest not to buy it.
Trust me if you are going to spend $700 on a Dell then do all the upgrades and stuff it would be better just to build a comp from scratch. For one thing as far as I know dell still has the BTX form motherboards and cases and for the most part you can only buy ATX form motherboards and cases. The BTX are pretty hard to find and there is not much varity. So basicly the motherboard isn't going to fit into anything you buy. You can build a comp that is going to be the same price as a dell and it is going to be WAY better. So if I where you do some reaserch on how to build a comp and go that rout instead of buying a dell then getting a case and all that other stuff. Trust me its not really all that hard I just built my fist a couple of months ago and its totally worth it.

I forgot to get one when I bought the speakers, and now I'm using batteries. But I just don't want to waste my money on batteries, if using them instead of an adapter is a lot more expensive.

in the last couple of days ive had this little problem. when surfing the net, nothing crazy just normal stuff like checking email and reading the news, my speakers will make this odd sound.

its two very short sounds about 2 seconds apart. the best way i can describe the sound is if you were to get a piece of fabric and hold it fairly taut and then you pinch the middle, pull it back a little bit and let it go. that is the sound. i know that sounds weird but thats what it is.

ive been able to determine that this page is one page that causes the sound to occur:

http://www.caughtoffside.com/2010/02...comment-382599

i refreshed the page several times. the first sound would always happen after the entire page had loaded. the second sound would occur after i had been redirected down the page to the comment that i had made

i recently reinstalled windows xp (about 2 weeks ago) and ive installed very few programs.

has anybody every heard of something that sounds similar to this? im assuming the answer would probably be "no", so in that case is there anything i can to do try and isolate the problem and determine what it causing it?

Hey,

I have converted the video and sound fine it's just that the Camcorder only has a Mono audio output.

How can I make the audio stereo so it can be played on a Surround Sound System?

The camera is Samsung VP-L600 and the cable I have plugs into the A/V Out and there are two connectors at the end: Yellow (Video) and White (Mono Sound). I don't want to buy another cable.

A:Make Mono Sound Stereo

There is no stereo information in a mono track, but you can simulate stereo using an audio editor such as the free Audacity:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/A basic technique is covered here:http://www.selected-audio-reviews.com/arti...o_to_stereo.htmWhat format are your video files being recorded in? The difficulty is going to be that the mono sound is incorporated into the audio layer of the video file, and extra sound would have to be added in as an overdub.If you simply want to record straight onto left and right channels, you would need to get a y-splitter lead for the audio connection, so there is two connections available. This would record two identical channels, sound would come from left and right speakers instead of just one, but there would be no stereo "surround" effect.

I somehow experience a problem that my heaphones (small ones), which work properly on my mobile, produce sound when connected to laptop only from the right headphone. The left one isn't reacting to tests as well.

A:How to make both headphones produce sound?

First obvious question, does both speakers in the PC work OK?

Can you try a different headphone, to verify it is a problem with the PC?

I recieved some speakers for my birthday in february. They've worked nice but in the past few months I've noticed that when i adjust the volume they make a fuzzy sound. It's really no big deal but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on why they do this. I don't believe that its anything with my computer, but I've tried a few things and nothings worked. There Altec Lansing VS.2121. Its just two speakers with a subwoofer and they cost about 50-60 dollars i believe.
I'm getting some more ram and maybe a graphics cards for christmas should I add a sound card to the list too?

A:Speakers Make A Fuzzy Sound

Well, a sound card won't hurt any! It'll do you good, but I don't think that this will fix the problem.

Have you tried relocating your speakers? Move them to a different spot, and make sure that they're not near any power cords, or any type of cords for that matter. The speaker wire themselves might be picking up interference from a power cord or another cord. Cordless phones have been known to interfere with some speakers (only happened to me once though). You might have to move your speakers more than once, and don't forget to move your subwoofer.

Hope this helps! Let us know how you made out with this.

How do I make my sound on my HP laptop louder besides the little microphone on the left? 

A:how to make my sound louder on my hp laptop?

Hi, One thing can help is the following.  Right click the speaker icon in the Taskbar and select 'Playback Devices'.  Left click the default device once to highlight it ( it's usually 'speakers & headphones' ) then click the Properties button.  Click the Enhancements tab and put a tick in the box next to 'Loudness Equalization'.  Click Apply to save the change and then click OK in all remaining windows and see if this has helped at all. Regards, DP-K

So I bought these headphones a couple of months ago and there has always been a static noise in them. It's not as easy to hear when I have a game going on in the backround or music, but you can SLIGHTLY still hear it. When no other sound is coming out, it is clear as day.

They are Skullcandy SLAYR headphones, bought them for around $80 bucks. I know that Skullcandy has a deal where you can send them back whenever you want if they break or something so I might just try that if I can't fix the problem beforehand.

I've tried plugging them into different USB ports on my computer and it still makes a static sound. I have also tried jiggling it around while it was plugged in but the static noise remained.

Could it be a conflict with sound drivers? I had old headphones from steelseries which I assume installed some driver on my computer and now I switched over towards the Skullcandy ones which installed a new driver on my computer as well when I initially plugged them in.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
 

A:Headphones make static sound

Test them on a different computer. That will determine if you have a headphone or PC issue.

Hi All,

I have an Acer Travelmate 220 which is making a continuous chirping/clicking sound from the speakers even when the volume is turned totally off.
It starts as soon as I boot the machine.
The problem started when the machine overheated (it's that hot in Africa).
It just rebooted and showed a brief (.5 sec) blue screen/dump before starting up.
I shut it down and let it cool and when I next started it the sound was there.
It's been there for the past three-four weeks and is driving me crazy.
I don't want to disconnect the speakers, are they fried for good?
I also have a Dell needed a bios password, but alas, that's another story.
Any and all help will be appreciated.

A:Speakers make chirping sound

Unfortunately, it making the niose the moment it starts up probably means the built in sound card has fried!!!!

So I have this headset plugged in almost always when I'm my computer and I run games/ventrilo/iTunes/Windows media player/IE.... alot of programs.

To the point: I want to be able to make it so only ventrilo's output sound goes to headset, everything else is to my regular speakers/headphones.

Ventrilo = Headset
iTunes = Speakers/Headphones
WMP = Speakers/Headphones
IE = Speakers/Headphones
Games = Speakers/Headphones
Realplayer = Speakers/Headphones

If it matters: I'm using Realtek's high definition sound drivers.

Thanks!
