I have Firefox set to open as the last item when Windows is finished booting. How can I get FF to play a sound, or sound file, so I know when Windows is ready to use?

 

If this is not the way to go, is there a better way?

 

Thanks for your input.

Drop this file into your Startup folder alongside Firefox. :wink:

That file has a sound that would be a great alert, but putting it into the Startup folder didn't work. But thanks for your suggestion.

 

However, in digging around I found a great workaround: I put Poptray (an e-mail previewer) which has the option of playing a sound file when it starts, into the Startup folder. Then I set Poptray to open a few seconds after Firefox -- and it plays the "ready" sound I'm looking for! :rolleyes:
