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
echo % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random% % random%
goto start

Step 2: Step Two: Saving

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

for example:

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.
<p>Sweet! Especially enjoyable at any computer at a school of your choice!</p>
<p>FYI the line should be </p><p>color 0A</p><p>color uses hex codes</p><p>But it is a great idea.</p>
giving it <br>0a<br>will just give it a light green color it doesn't really matter its a matter if preference
<p>mine only gives 5 numbers across</p>
did you put everything in correctly
<p>Rolem,</p><p>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.</p><p>Jerrad.Karpowich,</p><p>You need to remove this space.</p><p>Like so:</p><p>@echo off</p><p>color oa</p><p>:start</p><p>echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%</p><p>goto start</p><p>Nice tutorial ;)</p>
