Notepad is a built-in text editor that is made available on all Microsoft windows which allows you to read plain texts. The program also comes with some other features like text formatting, font change, word wrap and page setup. Most of you already know the purpose of Notepad, even some of us make use of it to open and edit XML files and execute some other important functions on it, but I’m pretty sure that 80% of you reading through this content don’t know some hidden features of Notepad.

This brings me to revealing the 10 amazing notepad tricks you should try right away, as they’re kept hidden and waiting for you to give them a shot. Although, there are more
tricks to it, but I’ll just reveal the common ten you should know.

Top 10 Amazing Notepad tricks you should try

1. Matrix Effect Trick
The Matrix effect trick is one of the
commonest notepad tricks. With the help of your Notepad, you get to generate a matrix like windows which displays random numbers (in green color) dropping down like
falling rains. It looks more as if you’re programming something and you’re a pro in the eyes of your friends.

%random% %random%
%random% %random%
%random% %random%
goto start

Once you are done, save the file as folder.bat or any name you like, just make sure its in .bat format

2. Unlimited folder maker
This is another lovely notepad trick which automatically creates unlimited folders with the help of Notepad. At least, you get to
prank your friends with this trick, create a .bat file of the trick and share to friends. All you need to do is, launch your notepad and
paste the below code on it.

md %random%
goto start

Once you’ve pasted the above code on your notepad, save the file as yourfolder.bat, just make sure it’s in “ .bat ” format. Launch the program and see what happens next.

4. Virus creation trick
Do you know that you can easily create a very dangerous virus using your notepad? The virus creation trick is used to generate a
harmful virus for a system. Maybe, there is this one dude that have always be stealing your data, you can easily send the file to
him/her, once the file is launched… gbam!!! SYSTEM INFECTED. Please don’t try on anyone, I’m just revealing for knowledge sake. To create the computer virus, just copy and paste the code below on your notepad.

%random% %random%
%random% %random%
%random% %random%

5. Text to Audio converter trick
Have you every though of creating a Text to audio converter yourself? Do you know that the program is easy to write with this simple trick? At least, you can boast of creating a
text to audio converter. As usual, all you need to do is create a new Notepad file, copy the below code and paste on the notepad.

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

Once you’ve pasted the above code, then you can save the file name to folder.vbs. or any name you like, just make sure to save in .vbs format. Launch the file on your computer; you’ll be prompted to input text which would be converted to audio.

6. C drive format trick with One click
This is another amazing notepad trick, but bad in the wrong hands. I know of a friend that managed to copy the file from my PC, thinking it’s a kinda hidden stuff, because I
named the folder “do no open”, he copied the file to his system and launched it… what happened next? You know the rest. Lol!!! The stuff formatted his C drive, just in a
single click. So, here’s how to generate such file. Simply launch your notepad, copy the below code and paste on your notepad.


Once the above code is pasted, simply save the file as folder.exe. or any name you like Just make sure the file is saved in .exe format.

7. Internet disconnection attack
This is another lovely notepad trick you can use against someone (please I’m not saying you should use it, just for knowledge sake).
With this notepad trick, you get to
disconnect someone’s internet connection. All you need to do is copy the below code and paste on notepad.

@echo off
Ipconfig /release

After that,save the file as internet.bat or any name you like just make sure its in .bat.

The only way out of this is to create another file with this code “ IPconfig /renew ” remember to exclude the quotes, because what this trick actual does is to release the entire data thus IP address would be lost.

8. Anti-virus Tester
Everybody wants to restrain their system from virus attack, but still download unreliable programs as antivirus. Do you know that with this notepad trick, you can easily test how reliable your antivirus program is? All you need is the file, once you launch, and a prompt from the antivirus wants to delete the file, just know that your antivirus is reliable, if not, it’s unreliable. Now, all you need to do is copy and paste the below code to your notepad.


After that, you’ve to save the file as anyname.exe. Just make sure that the file is in .exe file format. Launch the file and as soon your antivirus attempts to delete the program, just know that the antivirus is reliable, if not, I would advise you find some other reliable program.

9. Force Shutdown for Windows
We all know the common windows problem. Sometimes, due to over-tasking or lags, windows refuse to shutdown except you hold the power button (which isn’t a good way out). So the best shot to that is this notepad trick. With this trick, you get to force shutdown for windows computer. All you need to do is copy and paste the below code in your notepad.

@echo off
* Shutdown computer
shutdown -c “Sleep Tight” –s

Once you’ve pasted the above code, save the file as shutdown.bat or any name you wish to give it. Just make sure it’s saved in .bat file format.

10. File Locker trick
This is my favorite notepad trick. I use it to lock most of my computer files, at least to keep away from eye prying. So, if you ever wanted to lock your files without the use of any third party software, then using this notepad trick is your best shot. Simple, copy and paste the code below on your notepad.

title Folder Locker
if EXIST "Control Panel.
A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
echo Are you sure u want to Lock the
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.
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.
echo Folder locked
goto End
echo Enter password to Unlock folder
set/p "pass=>"
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.
ren "Control Panel.
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 lock.bat or any name but it must be in .bat format. Once the file is saved, double click the file to create a folder, as a new folder named locker would be created in same location as the file. Finally, move all files you wish to lock in the folder. Anytime you wish to unlock, simply go to the batch file created, double click, and input the password and Enjoy.

There are lots more to this just that I’ve taken my time to share the best amongst them. Hope you enjoy your time trying any of the above tricks. Feel free to drop your comment for questions and observations or any trick you feel should be on the list.
