In this article I will discuss on some codes which work on windows platform!
Scroll down the page for the CMD codes.


All these tricks will be done in notepad which is the text editor that is included in
nearly all windows machines.

Remember, most scripts will either have a '.vbs' or a '.bat' file extension, don't forget to add them on when saving the file.

So, to open notepad, just hit start>all programs> accessories>Notepad
or type in the CMD 'start notepad.exe'

1. Message popups

This is a cool trick, that can get really irritating to unsuspecting friends.

in notepad, type, or copy and paste this:

MsgBox "your text here"
MsgBox "your text here"
MsgBox "your text here"

This code will bring up a message pop up, saying whatever you type into the script.
I have put 3 message boxes before it loops back to the start, but you can put as many as you want, 
simply by adding more of the line in the script. Make sure that you put it before 'loop' though.

This is my example

Then save it as 'anything.vbs'


2. Diary log

This little trick is very good and easy to use.
Just open up notepad and type:


Then save it as whatever you want to call it, close it, and re-open it, and you will have a diary type
notepad tricks
entry, telling you the date and time. Type your entry/message, save it, and the next time you open it, it will be there.


3. Jam on a friends caps lock

This trick is very amusing and it will jam on the caps lock key on who ever opens the file.

open notepad and type:

Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wscript.sleep 100
wshshell.sendkeys "{CAPSLOCK}"

and save it as 'capslock.vbs'

This can fixed with a simple restart

4. Continually press 'enter'

As it says in the title, this script will continually press the 'enter' key.
This trick is VERY annoying for your victim, and makes the computer practically non usable until restart.
you could potentially lose unsaved work if you open this, so be careful!!!

open notepad and type:

Set wshShell = wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wscript.sleep 100
wshshell.sendkeys "~(enter)"

save it as 'anything.vbs'

To stop this, simply turn off your computer

5. The matrix effect

open notepad

@echo off
color 02
echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto start

Save as something like 'matrix.bat'  you have to have the '.bat' file extension on the end


6. Shutdown

This trick shuts down the computer after displaying a message. It goes without saying that this can be dangerous and can cause people to lose unsaved work.

open notepad

@echo off
msg * your message here
shutdown -c “your message here” -s 30

Now save the file with any name, but make sure it has the '.bat' extension


7. open some software many times

open notepad
@ECHO off
START %SystemRoot%system32notepad.exe
GOTO top

Then save as 'anything.bat'
you can change which piece of software opens, by typing in the route to the file after 'START'


8. Continually type a message

This will make your victims keyboard continually type a message, for this example, I have put 'you have been trolled' but you can change that to whatever you like.

in notepad, type:

Set wshShell = wscript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
wscript.sleep 100
wshshell.sendkeys “You have been trolled”

and save it as 'anything.vbs'


9. continually pop out c.d drives

This trick is very amusing, especially if you can see your victims reaction!
open notepad

Set oWMP = CreateObject(“WMPlayer.OCX.7?)
Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection
if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1
End If
wscript.sleep 5000

Save as 'anything.vbs'
