practical joke

if you want to have a little fun with a friend set there taskbar to autohide.
once hidden take a screen shot with the print screen key.
now set the desktop to hide all icons, and change their background to the screen shot you just took.

Rather old, but still very funny.
In college this morning, one of my friends decided it would be a good idea to try and install IE8 to his memory stick (he's thick and easily distracted). At the end of the lesson I realised the installer had finished whilst he was staring blankly at it.
I directed him to the task manager, then the processes tab, and told him that the one named 'explorer.exe' was the name installers process. (You can see where this is going)
He didn't listen at first, and went back to the application tab and tried to end it that way, but it didn't work. Unpertubed, he went back to the processes tab and killed the explorer process.
We all laughed, doubly so because you would expect that someone on a computer programming course would have a basic knowledge of processes.

That's a good one. I played that once on my sister. You also need uncheck the show icons box (I did this in XP).

Many years ago a friend and I were camping and scouting some land.
He thought it would be funny to replace the water in my canteen with pickle juice.
Ok so I'm 500 yards out and decide to take a drink - hahaha jokes on me.
Well, I got him back.
I took a can of sardines in hot sauce and dumped the contents into a wrapped up paper towel, placed this mess under his drivers seat capet flap.
About a week goes by and now his van smells like dead fish.

Ok so that doesn't have anything to do with computers but he had to drive with his 'windows' down.

The original trick with the screenshot of the desktop is to take a screenshot with all icons present and set this as background.

At this point you remove some of the actual icons so that the inactive ones show through.

A variation is to have the taskbar present when you take the screenshot and then hide this when the screen is set as the wallpaper....

At college there a few tricks that get played on people including hiding things (pen drive) a fun one was a batch file that opened photoshop notepad and looped (he was idiot to open it)as no one likes the person. I have had a few played on me like hiding my mouse behind the pc (wireless mouse) using a laptop at college I can atleast lock my screen

I remotely controlled my parent's computer once. It was right after the watched I-robot. The thought the "ghost" was in their machine.

P.S. You need to have seen the movie to know what i'm talking about.
