For many users, computers are extensions of their personality. What better way to leave your mark on a computer than to personalize it as you wish?
In this article, we’re going to list a series of sound set resources for Windows 7 you can use to customize your machine.
Most users prefer to download game or movie sound sets, and oftentimes they can be extracted by users themselves. Indeed, the best way is to extract the sound sets from games directly.
Most games often have a community of hackers who have access to the tools necessary for that task. Also, sometimes, the sound files are available on disk.
I made Star Wars sounds on my old Windows 7. C-3PO said “Please don’t deactivate me!” when you turned off the computer and Darth Vader “Yes, my master…” when you turned it on.
If you’re looking for a quick solution and you prefer to download the sound file directly, check out the resources listed below.
