  1. Open the Start Menu / Settings / Control Panel
  2. Double click on the “Sounds” control panel. In this control panel, Scroll down in the events window until you reach “Windows Explorer” and under this you will find “Start Navigation“.
  3. Click on “Start Navigation” and you will see a .wav file appear in the “Name:” box. This is the sound that is associated with the click sound.
