Windows 7If you are bored with your Windows 7 plain and simple startup sound and message, then this hack will add some spice and fun to your computer! Thanks to a small, little file  you will be able to make your Windows 7 talk at startup and greets you with a nice voice, Windows 7 own synthesized voice!

  4. Now you should save the file on your desktop. Such a file will be saved as a .txt but we  need to change it to a file having  .vbs extension.
  5. Click File on the upper left side of your Notepad window.
  6. Click Save as…
  7. On the left pane select the location where such a file will be saved. In our case you will have to save such file on your desktop.

  10. Now, click the Save button.
  11. Move the .vbs file to the following location: C:\Users\ UserName\AppData\ Roaming\Microsoft\ Windows\Start Menu\ Programs\ Startup  and…you are done! Next time you will turn on your Windows 7, your computer will talk!
  12. In most cases the AppData folder will be hidden from view, by default. Follow this tutorial to show hidden files and folders.
