April’s here, and it seems playing a prank is better than falling a prey to it. So here are some great pranks you can play on your friends, the only thing is these are gonna be smart and completely tech oriented.

1. The Ghost

What happens : Your cd-rom keeps on opening continually, without the need of actually touching the button.

How to do it :

a. Open notepad
b. Copy the code given below onto the notepad file:

Set oWMP = CreateObject(“WMPlayer.OCX.7?)

Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection


if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then

For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1



For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count – 1



End If

wscript.sleep 5000


c. Save it as “yourtext.VBS”.

Now open the file and see the ghost at work! The file will continuously force the CD rom to pop out! And If you have more than one then it pops out all of them! The only problem is that this is meant for a Computer and not a laptop.

2. PC shutter

What happens : This is one annoying trick. You can get the pc to switch of by itself, by just giving a message. The best part is that the message does not need any confirmation. The file with execute it self no matter what you do.

How to make it happen :
a. Open a notepad file
b. Paste the given code in it :

@echo off

msg *eg – Its time to get some rest.

shutdown -c “Error! You have to take rest! Byeeeeee” -s

c. Save the file with any name but with .bat extension and close it.

Note : Before trying it yourself, make sure all your work is saved as this will forcefully shut down your computer.

3. Get In the Matrix

Whats going to happen: Hope you have seen the movie matrix, what effect you are going to create is the same as the one seen in the movie.

How to do it:

a. Open notepad
b. Copy the given code in the notepad file
@echo off

color 02


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

c. Save the file with .bat extension

These were a few best notepad tricks which you can use as a prank on your friends. Get these files on the target pc and get them to execute the file.
