    Do you know if there is any way to add an event? I have a friend who would like Word to say, "That's brilliant," whenever she saves a document. (She's very modest.) But Save does not seem to be a recognized event.

    Just wondering if there is any way to configure Windows to play event sounds using a URL instead of a filename and path.  I run a sound clip database, and would like to be able to extend this functionality to my users, so that they can assign clips from my site to event sounds automatically, without having to first download the files to their local system.  Is there any way that something like this could be done?

    @Bill Auclair you could do something like this

    System.Media.SoundPlayer sp = new SoundPlayer();

    sp.Stream(// stream to the website ...

    I would also like to know how to Add custom events like the above people.  Adding sounds while files are being copied and other things.  I would also like to know how to add sound gor Dialogue Boxes that pop up like Confirm Delete File, or for Confirm Replace files Etc. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

    @goodraju hooking into more global events will allow you to do just that.  And most of that is configurable via the control panel built into Windows.
