Start up and Shutdown Sounds
You can put in the full path name for files in other directories,
but files must not be under directories with spaces in their path.
(ex. value: "\Storage\Application Data\Sounds" may not work)

”on” = 1

3, Go to "HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT" and add a "key" and name it "FontPath".

4. Leave the "default" as it is of the newly created key and add a "string" value called "FontPath"

5. Edit the string value to read: \Storage\windows\Fonts

6. Close the registry editor

7. Using active sync, go to \windows directory and copy the "ninab.ttf" font file from the MAIN windows directory and copy it to your PC. Then rename it "Thick.ttf" and copy it back to \Storage\windows\Fonts
