How can I make one user's sound settings the default for all users?

On a Windows 10 pc we counsel patients at a remote kiosk. The audio/video settings work as desired for one user but not for anyone else who logs in. How can I make those settings the default for all users on that pc and/or copy them to additional pcs?

Hi,

As fa as I know, if you would like to apply default sound settings to all users, using the registry maybe useful.

Scan the HKEY_USERS registry hive for all users (names look similar to S-1-5-19).

The key HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps.Default contains all the definitions for the sounds of that user.

For example, you will find the logon sound under WindowsLogon.Current, whose (Default) value is %SystemRoot%\media\Windows Logon Sound.wav.

Change it to any other file that Windows can play (normally .wav).


Hope above information can help you.
