How to add/turn on Windows 8/8.1 Log on/off sound

Few days ago Microsoft ends its support for Windows 7 operating system. But still some people won't upgrade to Windows 8/8.1 version. Some of them already have upgraded the version of the operating system, but Windows 8/8.1 users have seen that in start up there is no sound. When you are logging into your Windows 8/8.1 there is no sound for the welcome as in Windows 7 you can hear the welcome sound. For some people that's doesn't matter if sound exists in start-up or no. 
And in this post, I will show you how to turn on a sound in Windows logging on and off process.
