comment Can I customize Finder to have distinct sounds for moving files vs. copying files?
Downvoted; as Patrick noted, they are not "embedded in the code" and changing them won't "wreck my Mac".

comment iTunes Store says my card is invalid
Sounds like your card is being declined or in some other way is invalid. I would call your card issuer.

comment Can I customize Finder to have distinct sounds for moving files vs. copying files?
Thanks, but this not address this question. I specifically asked for a distinction between the Move and Copy sounds. Most of the article talks only about to create your own sounds. The Sound Effects panel does not refer to events that you can customise, but instead sound names, so there is no way using this method alone to assign different sounds.

comment Once I've signed in with a previous owner's Apple ID, then set up iCloud with my own Apple ID, is the activation lock transferred to me?
This question is marked as a duplicate, but it is not. The other question mentions a SIM card, but that's not relevant in this case. The setup process has a two-step questionnaire regarding the iCloud ID, but it's not clear what happens with the iCloud ID you entered once you've bypassed the activation lock. That's the nub of the question.

@Tyson, it's on another iPad, and yes I can.

@IconDaemon it is using mine, yes. It's not clear to me that the activation lock ID and the iCloud ID are the same thing, though.

I can't get that far. I'm in the welcome/setup process screens.

@Tetsuijin, how would I reset it? I am seeing the welcome/setup process screen, there appears to be no option to do that. If I don't connect it to Wifi or iTunes, it refuses to proceed; when I do, it asks for the Apple ID.
