Mean (but harmless) Practical Jokes

Pranks to pull in the office.

~ Go into MS Word or similar program on co-worker’s computer, and add an

entry to the AutoCorrect feature. This is a very simple prank that will send the novice user into a frenzy. Configure the AutoCorrect option to replace the word “the” with the phrase “you suck!” They will usually panic and start scanning for viruses.

~ Take clear tape and tape the underside of the mouse. Make sure you take the sticky end of the tape and apply it to the bottom of the mouse so it locks the ball in place. The victim will most likely check the connections in the back, reinstall drivers, reboot, etc., before they realize what has happened.

~ Another gem is to do a “Print Screen” of the user’s desktop, and then paste the image from the clipboard to a photo program, and save the image as a bitmap. Then, set the ‘snapshot’ of their desktop as the actual desktop wallpaper. (You’ll have to hide the Windows status bar, and move all their desktop icons into a folder, which you can hide conspicuously in the corner or something.) The user will see their desktop as always, but everything on it will appear to be frozen when they try to click on it…sending them into a rebooting and virus scanning fit!

~ This will mostly only work with people with very little PC knowledge.
Stick in a floppy in their floppy drive. They will be unable to boot up windows until the disk is out. This is fun to watch.

~ Try to find a very obnoxious CD lying around. Preferably a reggae or rap CD. Pop it in their CD ROM. Put up the sound full blast by double clicking on the volume control on the bottom right. On normal configurations the audio CD will auto play when windows first starts up.

The person starting up their PC in the morning will definitely be embarrassed.
