Introduction: Things to Do in Notepad: the Matrix

In the end the result will look something like this. you can change the color of the text to a wide variety. This has no use just that it looks pretty cool and you can show your friends or use it as eye candy for the computer background

Step 1: Step One: Open Notepad

Open up notepad and type the following (or copy and paste)

@echo off
color oa
:start
echo % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random%
goto start



Step 2: Step Two: Saving

to save this file go to
file
save as
then give it any name you want but end it with .bat

for example:
matrix.bat

after this step you should be done just close notepad and open your file

Step 3: Step Three: Changing Color (optional)

to change the color of the random text you just have to replace the highlighted in the photo.
In the photo I have changed it to 0d which gives it the pink look. you can experiment with this by changing the last digit to different numbers and letters.

    Sweet! Especially enjoyable at any computer at a school of your choice!

    FYI the line should be

    color 0A

    color uses hex codes

    But it is a great idea.

    giving it
    0a
    will just give it a light green color it doesn't really matter its a matter if preference

    did you put everything in correctly

    Rolem,

    In the code you provided us, you put a space after each first % for each random, except for one. That's why it's only showing 1 set of numbers.

    Jerrad.Karpowich,

    You need to remove this space.

    Like so:

    @echo off

    color oa

    :start

    echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%

    goto start

    Nice tutorial ;)
