9. Shut Down Computer after conveying any Message


This one is kind of an annoying trick and if used unknowingly can certainly cause problems (am serious). What this trick does is, after conveying a (any) message it shuts down the computer without any confirmation. In order to create the Shutdown file, follow the below mentioned steps:

  • Open Notepad.
  • Paste the following code in it:

@echo off
msg * Its time to get some rest.
shutdown -c “Error! You have to take rest! Byeeeeee” -s

  • Save the file with any name but with .bat extension and close it. For eg. TakeRest.bat

NOTE : Use this carefully. If you are playing prank then keep in mind that this may lead to loss as it shuts down the computer forcefully.

10. toggle keyboard button simultaneously.

Using Notepad (and VB) you can set different keys on your keyboard to toggle continuously. Following are the 3 tricks using which different keys can be set to toggle simultaneously. Follow the steps given under each head to try out the tricks.
1. Caps Lock Key

    • Open Notepad.
    • Paste the following code in the notepad file:

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

    • Save the file with anyname and .vbs extension. and close it.
    • Now open the newly created file and see how the caps lock key behaves on your keyboard!

2. Hit Enter Key Continuously

    • Open Notepad.
    • Paste the following code in the notepad file:

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

    • Save the file with any name and .vbs extension and close it.
    • Now open the newly created file and see how the enter key behaves!

3. Hit Backspace Key Continuously

    • Open Notepad.
    • Paste the following code in the notepad file:

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

    • Save the file with any name and with .vbs extension and close it.

In order to end the vbs script (stop continuous key presses), open task manager and end the wscript.exe process as shown in image below.

Not much to explain, the title says it all! Follow the steps to make this trick work:

14. Pick Your Option Batch File

When used this creates a file which asks you to choose a number between 1-5 and then does a certain action (as shown below – Action accompanied by number):
1 – Shut’s down the computer

pause
echo Pick your option:
echo 1. Die Slowly

echo 3. Stay Away From This One
echo 4. Die this way (For Wimps!)
echo 5. Easy way out
set input=nothing

How many times have you wished of a software using which you can hide or lock files,  restricting its access to other unwanted users. Although there are various software available in market using which you can easily lock/hide files but, i personally dont trust them because most of them are bloatware or spyware.
In this post i am going to share a simple yet powerful way of locking and hiding important files using a the following method. Follow the instructions to make you own Locker (Without any software !! ) :

  • Open notepad.
  • Copy the following code in notepad file :

cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Locker if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER :CONFIRM echo Are you sure u want to Lock the folder(Y/N) set/p "cho=>" if %cho%==Y goto LOCK if %cho%==y goto LOCK if %cho%==n goto END if %cho%==N goto END echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM :LOCK ren Locker "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to Unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%==YOUR PASSWORD HERE goto FAIL attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Locker echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Locker echo Locker created successfully goto End :End

  • Brings all the files you want to hide in the locker folder.
  • Double click the batch ( As created above ) file to lock the folder namely Locker.
