    This may be a stupid question but I have searched everywhere I can think of in settings and apps, yet still can't find anywhere to set the default alarm tone for the stock alarm app. This wouldn't normally be an issue, but using Cortana is great and I don't really want to be having to go in to edit the alarm tone every time. Any idea where it is?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    So I found this really annoying after using my Band for setting an alarm. The ringtone default is some weak, barely audible crap tone. No way I've found a way to change it. The workaround I've found is that if I say to Cortana to remind, that I can set in settings with the manage app sounds and picking one for phone or search. We should be able to do this for setting an alarm, not just a reminder. They are different.

    Alarms need to have a way to set a default specific alarm and better yet, even the ability to speak which alarm at the time of voice command.

    If everyone can vote this feature in the uservoice, maybe they'll notice.

    Sorry to bump this guys, but anyone know how to change the default alarm tone so that I don't have to edit the alarm each time I set one through Cortana?

    Open the Alarms from the app list, click on any of your prepared alarms, shows up as 'edit', from there you can change the tone.

    Please read his post. He's asking about changing the default tone setting so that you only have to ask Cortana to set the alarm and not have to edit the tone for each individual alarm that was set.

    To OP: Unfortunately that still isn't available... I've had the same frustration as well.
