Out of curiosity, is Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 the version in Windows 7 or Windows 10?

I'd be willing to bet that the registry hack that works in 7 will work in 10, for switching on audio in safe mode.
Here's the registry hacks:
Files 1&2 can be called anything you want.reg
Save the below in notepad and give it a .reg extension and save it and enter on it, Windows will ask you if you want to run it.
After file 1, I'll put file 2 that will undo it if it does not work.

Subject: Sound settings do not appear to be turned on in Safe Mode in Windows 10

Hello everyone:

The subject line says it all. Earlier today, I checked the check box to have the system boot to safe mode, under the Boot Tab in MsConfig, saved the setting change then, I restarted the computer. . However, after waiting for about 2 minutes, I determined that the sound settings for the default sound card are not enabled for Windows 10 in Safe Mode. I was certain that the system had restarted in Safe Mode, and on that assumption, I used another computer with MsConfig to follow the steps, to uncheck the check box for the original computer then, I restarted the computer, which started in full Windows mode.

 I have no idea how far back this problem goes, I do remember, the System Sounds were turned on for the last major update in 2019 because, I can remember booting Windows 10 into Safe Mode at that time and being able to use both Narrator and NVDA

Do you now need to initialize a setting in standard Windows in order for the System Sounds to be turned on for safe mode?
