Register Sounds

Quicken software needs to be updated for Windows 11 to enable the "cha-ching" sound when entering transactions in a register. There is an undue delay currently between the time a transaction is entered and when the sound is emitted.

  • When is ka-ching coming back??? It's been missing for months, maybe a YEAR. Entering a transaction in the register usually results in ka-ching sound. What happened?

    Quicken Sounds checklist (Windows only. Q Mac has no sounds)

    1. Make sure that the speakers are turned on and the volume is somewhat up (not all the way down) and not muted.
    2. Are you using an HDMI - connected monitor? Windows may have rerouted sound from the internal or external PC speakers to the HDMI monitor, assuming the monitor has speakers like a TV. Enable those speakers or review Control Panel / Sound / Playback and select the correct speakers, mark as default.
    3. In Quicken ensure that in Edit / Preferences / Setup "Turn on Quicken Sounds" has a checkmark.
    4. Restart Quicken if you had to make any change.
    5. Still no sounds? Make sure that in Control Panel / Sound / Sounds tab the active Sound Scheme still contains the Quicken sound files. If the sound scheme was improperly modified by some other software (or Windows) update, find a different sound scheme which contains the Quicken sounds and make that the active sound scheme.
    6. If you can't fix it with #3 above, refresh your Quicken software installation by downloading and installing the latest Mondo Patch file from
