Specs: Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit, i7-2600 @ 3.401 GHz / 12269 MB
In sounds (control panal) in Windows 8 the sound for "Shut-down" is no longer listed. What happened to it & how do I re-introduce it?

Have you installed the recent Windows Update to Win 8.1? Just wondered because sometimes, by chance, and update happens to fix minor issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Updated when it came out. But the sound has never been available in Win 8 (for me at least). Worked fine in Vista, & 7!

✔ Best Answer
I think it would be a good idea to get the latest 8.1 update which should be showing in Windows Update. In any event without this you will no longer get security updates after 10 June. I don't know what is causing this but it is best start with everything up to date. It might happen to fix it.

EDIT:
Have just found the answer - shutdown sound is not available in Windows 8 - seems MS dumped it. Not showing in mine either - see discussions here:

I would still go ahead with the update though.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
