In the Windows Sounds control panel, where all of your system sounds are defined, you can set the sounds for Window-Eyes Startup and Window-Eyes Shutdown. The default wav files are located in the Window-Eyes program files directory (by default, c:\Program Files\GW Micro\Window-Eyes for 32-bit systems, and c:\Program Files (x86)\GW Micro\Window-Eyes for 64-bit systems).

To change the sounds, do the following:

  1. Press the Windows key to bring up the Windows 7 Start Menu or Windows 8 Start Screen.
  2. Type "change system sounds"
  3. Locate "change system sounds" from the results list and press enter 
  4. Tab to the Program Events tree view
  5. Locate Window-eyes
  6. Select the shutdown or startup item
  7. Tab to the browse button, and press enter
  8. Navigate to the sound you wish to assign, for example C:\Program Files (x86)\GW Micro\Window-Eyes\we_startup.wav, and press enter

You may choose the Test button to verify the sound, or choose OK to close the dialog.
