2. Trick To Create Computer Virus
One of the first Notepad trick i learned so many years ago was creating of computer virus. Although it wasn't meant for attaching other peoples computer as i was just practicing and being happy for knowing that trick.
There are different types of virus you can create with Notepad but in this post, i will only unveil one. Notepad can be used to generate a harmful virus for a system. once Please don’t try this on anyone, I’m just revealing for knowledge sake. Once the file is launched gbam!!! SYSTEM INFECTED. To create this file,

=> Open your Notepad program

=> Input the below codes in your notepad. Just copy and paste the codes.

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

=> Save the file as anyname.bat. You can choose to save the file using any name, but make sure it’s in .bat format.

=> Launch the saved files and you’ll have the matrix effect running on your desktop screen

3. Formatting C-Drive With One Click
You can also call this one another virus trick (if it is used dangerously) you can simply create a folder or file that if someone clicks on it, it will format the computer's C drive immediately.
I know of someone that managed to copy the file from my PC, thinking it’s a hidden stuff, because the folder was named “do no open” by me, after he copied the file to his system and launched it… you won't believe what happened next? Lol!!! 😁 The stuff is actually dangerous. It formatted his C drive without wasting time, just with one single click. So, do you like this trick? Okay, to create it, just launch your notepad, copy the below code and paste on your notepad.


After that, save the file as anyname.exe.
Be sure the file is saved in exe format because it is important. The file formats are very important in these tutorials. Once someone click on it, it will automatically delete everything on the computer C-drive. Even your own PC so don't try it on yours unless you have backup of your data.

4. Trick To Disable Someone's Internet Connection
Here is yet another dangerous Notepad trick to harm someone or your enemy. Please don't use this casually. Am not supporting wickedness and this tutorial is not intended to cause problem. With Notepad, you can create a harmful file that will automatically disconnect someone's PC internet connection. It release the entire data thus IP address would be lost.
It sounds bad right? Okay. To do this, just copy the below code and paste on your Notepad.

@echo off
Ipconfig /release

After that, save it with anyname.bat. Like i said earlier, it is very dangerous and immediately it is launched, the PC won't be able to connect to the Internet anymore but the only way out of this is by creating another file with this code “IPconfig /renew” without the quotes and the system will return back normally again.

5. Trick To Lock Computer Files
Sometime ago i published a post on this blog on How to lock your system files and folders for security reasons, i advice you to read the post and see how it is done alternatively. But to do it with another method using Notepad, just copy and paste the below code on your notepad.

title Folder Locker
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
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.
ren Locker "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
echo Folder locked
goto End
echo Enter password to Unlock folder
set/p "pass=>"
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
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End

From the above code, change the “YOUR PASSWORD HERE” to the password you want to use for file lock. After that, save the file as locker.bat or any name but remember it must be in .BAT format. Once the file is saved, to activate it, double click the file to create a folder, as a new folder named as locker would be created in same location as the file. Next thing to do is to move all the files you want to lock in the folder. Meanwhile, if you wish to unlock 🔓 the folder anytime, just go to the batch file created and double click on it, then type the password and and it will be unlocked 🔓

6. Trick To Force Windows To Shut Down
That face 😔 you wear when your windows PC refuses to shut down. 96% of computer users had experienced this one time or the other of their life and it's not funny honestly. But with the help of Notepad, you can create a file to initiate and force your system to shut down if it proves stubborn.

After that, save the file as shutdown.bat or any other name you wish but make sure it’s saved in BAT file format. From there you can shut down your system with one click.

7. Trick To Test Anti-virus
Forget about all those non-functioning anti-virus testing software you download. With Notepad, you can test how reliable an Antivirus app is.
It is very simple to create. Just open your notepad, copy and paste the below code to your notepad.


Once you have copied it, save the filename as anyname.exe. (make sure that the file is in exe file format). Now to test your the reliability of your system Antivirus app, just launch the file and as soon your antivirus attempts to delete the program, it simply indicates that the antivirus is reliable, but if not, your Antivirus is just dead and not functioning. So install another reliable one and make sure you update it regularly.

8. Matrix Effect Trick
This trick is for fun but can also act as virus. What it does is that it generates a matrix like windows which displays random numbers (in green colors) falling down like falling rains on your PC screen.

=> Launch the saved files and you’ll have the matrix effect running on your desktop screen.

9. Trick To Make Unlimited Folders
Another virus lookalike trick. Do you know you can create unlimited folders 📁 on your system with Notepad trick?

10. Trick To Convert Text To Audio
Finally, do you know you can convert any text file into audio 👂 🔊? This reminds me when i was schooling, i created so many audio versions of my text books and notes and burned it to CD 💿. So even if am doing any other things like washing clothes, i will just be playing the CD and be learning at the same time. It really helped me.

Now to do this with Notepad, copy and paste the below code on your Notepad

Dim msg, sapi
msg=InputBox("Enter your text","Altechgeek audi0 converter")
Set sapi=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.Speak msg

Then save the file name with anyname.vbs (it must be saved with vbs format) then, launch the file on your computer; you’ll be asked to input text which would be converted to audio. Just type all the text you wish to convert to audio. Remember there are apps that you can use to also do this like "google text to speech" and "iPhone text to speech" on mobile devices
