Introduction: Funny Folder Prank

This will teach you how to make an unlimmited amount of folders in any place you want it will just keep making them untill you exit

i aloud it to run for 5 seconds and it made over 1,000 folders

Step 1: Step 1

All you have to do is type

@echo off
:top
md %random%
goto top

@echo off makes it so that it appears to be a blank screen but actually its making hundreds of folders and the only time it will say something is if it creats the same title twice

then save it in the folder you want it to make the folders in, save it as funnyfolderprank.bat or watever you want just so it says .bat at the end

Step 2: Short-cuts

People probably not going to click on an icon that looks like this

picture so to make it better (funnier and easier to prank people

with) make a short-cut to it, put the actual one in the folder you

want it to make folders in and on the desktop or what they go

to most and right click and say - New - Shortcut - and then click

browse and find the file, then name it something and click finsh.

Then right click on the shortcut and say properties then click

change icon and find the one that looks like a movie film (tell

the person that you found the movie they wanted and downloaded it

on there computer, that way they will think its a shortcut to the

movie and they will click on it then they will think its loading

so they wont exit right away when they finally realize its not

going to load or so many errors have came up they realized

somethings wrong it will be to late)

also just something to know its impossible to delete them using

cmd you HAVE to find all of them and delete them manually... ouch

ha ha

Step 3: Finished Shortcut

When the shortcut is finished it should look like this only with the name you choose

Step 4: Other Instructables

For more of my instructables type in "trivia game" or "how to make a trivia game" click on the one with a red picture and says computerfaker3 on the bottom

If you change the md line to read: "md %random% > nul" (ignore the quotes, it's just so you can see the command line) then even if random hits the same value more than once you won't get any error messages. The > nul part means redirect standard output to nul which is a special device that discards any input. Also, this will work on any PC running any version of Windows. The script is a batch file so it'll actually work in MS-DOS too, so no need to use Vista/XP/W7 or the like.

cd %dir1%

Mines still better because with mine you just place it in the folder you want it to make the folders in then you just make it hidden, then create a shortcut to it with a internet explore icon or one like the one above.

Dude, just say his is cool. His is better, because it can do everything yours does and more. Plus, all they have to do to see your other instructables is click your username. Also, you never said to open up notepad.

author
computerfaker3 (author)DYLEGO2009-01-29

never said it wasnt just saying that i personally think mines better, and if you dont know that yours supposed to open notepad all you have to do is ask, and i'll reply
