Vista Sound Schemes

#1
I have an authentic Vista sound pack for my Windows 10 but I don't know what sounds go to where. Since Asterisk doesn't use Asterisk.wav it uses something like Balloon.wav instead I can't figure out what the original Vista had. Can someone either list or screen shot what sounds go to what? Thanks.

I know this isn't exactly what you wanted but thought I'd post it anyhow. Most of the things on the lists are self explanatory. If there's a couple you want to know the sound association, let me know.

I need to know what the following are

Asterisk
Critical Stop
Default Beep
Exclamation

I know it's a PITA but if you could list me off all the ones at least under the Windows section I'd be eternally grateful.

Thanks

Asterisk- Windows error.wav

Critical stop- Windows critical stop.wav

Default Beep- Windows ding.wav

Exclamation- Windows Exclamation.wav

As you notice, the .wav files for a couple of the sounds have the same sound name in their name. (that's a real sentence isn't it? :D)

To my knowledge, I've never changed the default sounds. Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

There's the New Fax Notification and New Mail Notification which both use the Windows Notify.wav.

There's a System Notification which uses the Windows Balloon.wav.

There's also a Windows Explorer Notification Bar which uses the Windows Information Bar.wav file.

I didn't see any others.
