Setting System Sounds

By default, your Pocket PC will emit sounds when you perform certain operations, or when certain events occur. For example, if you receive an instant message with MSN Messenger, you'll hear a sound.

To change which sounds you hear, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Start button, then select Settings. When the Settings screen appears, select the Personal tab and then tap Sounds & Notifications.

  2. When the Settings & Notifications screen appears (shown in Figure 3.2), select the Volume tab and check an item to enable the associated sound. By default, sounds are enabled for Events, Programs, and Notifications. You can turn on sounds (either loud or soft) for whenever you tap the screen or press one of your device's hardware buttons.

The System Volume control on the System & Notifications screen duplicates the function of the Volume control on the Navigation Bar.

  1. Select the Notifications tab, shown in Figure 3.3. Select an event from the pull-down list, and then select whether you want to play a sound, display an onscreen message, or flash your device's notification light. If you select to play a sound, you can pull down the Play Sound list and select a specific sound for that event.
