Once you enable it you have to assign what sound you wish to use. It seems to work so far for me.

According to this How To Geek article, you have to now edit the registry
to get the exit windows sound back.
Up to you if you want to do this, but this is the link to the article I
found:

One of the most annoying things about running Windows 10 is that there is
no shutdown sound to indicate that your computer has shut down like in
previous versions of Windows.?? The only reliable way to determine for
sure that your computer has shut down completely is to listen for the
internal cooling fan to stop spinning, which is not always possible,
especially with a laptop whose internal fan may emit little or no noise.??
But the next best thing would be to have JAWS issue a shutdown sound
whenever you close it manually or you shut down your computer.?? Is there
any way to assign a shutdown sound to JAWS??? That other unmentionable
screen reader has a shutdown sound, so I don't see any reason why JAWS
couldn't have one, also.
