Introduction: Awesome Notepad Pranks

In this Instructable, I will be sharing with you some awesome pranks you can play on your friends using the computer program Notepad, which is included in all Microsoft Windows computers, or can be downloaded here. Use these codes at your own risk; I am not responsible for anything that you decide to do with them or anything that happens by using them.

Step 1: Matrix Effect

This prank will not have an effect on the computer; it will just display a random set of green numbers which automatically keep changing.

Copy this code and paste it into Notepad:

@echo off

color 02 :start echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% goto start

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.bat. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Open up the file and watch the magic.

To end the process, simply close the file.

Step 2: Constant CD Drive Pop

This prank constantly pops the CD drive of the victim.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

Set oWMP = CreateObject(“WMPlayer.OCX.7?)

Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection do if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject Next For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject Next End If wscript.sleep 5000 loop

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email and watch the fun.

To end this process, open Task Manager(Alt+Ctrl+Delete). Under Processes, end the process “wscript.exe

Step 3: Keyboard LED Disco Ball

This prank makes the keys with LED lights flash like a disco ball on the victim's computer.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

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

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email and watch the fun.

To end this process, open Task Manager(Alt+Ctrl+Delete). Under Processes, end the "thewscript.exe" process.

Step 4: Toggle Caps Lock

This prank makes everything that the victim types in capital letters.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)

do wscript.sleep 100 wshshell.sendkeys “{CAPSLOCK}” loop

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email and watch the fun.

To end this process, open Task Manager(Alt+Ctrl+Delete). Under Processes, end the "thewscript.exe" process.

Step 5: Hit Enter Key Continuously

This prank constantly hits the enter key on the victim's computer.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

Set wshShell = wscript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
do wscript.sleep 100 wshshell.sendkeys “~(enter)” loop

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email and watch the fun.

To end this process, open Task Manager(Alt+Ctrl+Delete). Under Processes, end the "thewscript.exe" process.

Step 6: Hit Backspace Key Continuously

This prank constantly hits the backspace key on the victim's computer.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

MsgBox “Lets Rumble”
Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”) do wscript.sleep 100 wshshell.sendkeys “{bs}” loop

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Step 7: Slowly Type Messages

This prank slowly types messages on the victim's computer.

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

WScript.Sleep 180000

WScript.Sleep 10000

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)

WshShell.Run “notepad”

WScript.Sleep 100

WshShell.AppActivate “Notepad”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “Hel”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “lo ”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “, ho”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “w a”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “re ”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “you”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “? ”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “I a”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “m g”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “ood”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys ” th”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “ank”

WScript.Sleep 500

WshShell.SendKeys “s! “

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email and watch the fun.

To end this process, open Task Manager(Alt+Ctrl+Delete). Under Processes, end the "thewscript.exe" process.

Step 8: Forcefully Shut Down Computer

Warning!!! Read this before you proceed! This code can be dangerous if it is not used properly! If an unsaved document is open while you or anyone else open the file, the data from it will be lost! Save all of your documents before running this code! Use it at your own risk!

This prank forces the victim's computer to shut down immediately

Copy the code below and paste in into Notepad:

@echo off
msg * Shutdown computer. shutdown -c “Sleep Tight” -s

Once you have this code in a Notepad document, save it as anything.vbs. (The anything can be anything that you want it to be. This applies to all of the steps in this Instructable.)

Send this file to your friends via email at their own risk. Warning them beforehand is advised.

Step 9: Use at Your Own Risk

Remember, you are at your own risk while using these codes, and you may put your friends at risk by sending them these files. As I said before, I am not responsible for anything that happens to you or anything that these programs decide to do to your computer. Use at your own risk.
