Silly Season PC Antics

In the spirit of the festive (or silly) season, today we’ll take  light hearted look at some of the fun tricks you can do on your (or someone elses!) PC. 

My favourite computer trick involves the following.  On a friend or family members computer, close all their programs, then  take a screenshot of their desktop (use the Print Screen / PrtScrn key for this) and save it using Ms Paint or similar (you just paste the screenshot into MS Paint and save to a file).  Then right click on a blank part of the desktop and choose View and untick “Show Desktop Icons.”   This hides all their icons.   Now browse to where you saved that screenshot, right click it, and choose “Set as desktop background”.  Now they have a picture of their actual desktop set as a background, complete with icons, but as it’s an image they can’t click on any of the icons.  Watch them madly clicking away at the images of their icons trying to open their programs and try and stifle your giggles.

For some more amusement, try these searches in Google:  “do a barrel roll”, “askew”, “google gravity” (click I’m feeling lucky button for this one), “Chuck Norris” (click I’m feeling lucky for this one too).  Happy holidays!
