Introduction: The Old Frozen-Screen Prank
This is a nice April Fools prank that will result to the victim lobbing many calls to tech support. The trick is that when the victim tries to click on an icon on his/her computer the computer will not respond to the clicking. In fact it won't even highlight the icon.
This is for the April Fools Contest so please vote for it. Thank you
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Requirments
You will need
1. A computer that can hide the icons. All windows can do this. I use a XPS 400 which will hide the icons
Step 2: Take a Screenshot
All you have to do in this step is push the screenshot button on your keyboard. The screenshot button is on the top-right hand corner and says "Print Screen/SysRq" Then you have to paste the picture into paint or any picture editing program. And you have a screen shot. The screenshot you will be taking is of the desktop.
Step 3: Finishing the Prank
Now all you have to do is change the backround on the desktop to the screenshot and hide the icons. The process is described in the pictures below. Now just sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Try to keep a straight face or else the whole prank will fail.
