Are you ready to absolutely confuse the heck out of your unsuspecting victim? I sure hope so, because everything I've covered thus far has all been to prepare you for this one glorious moment: the ultimate desktop prank! For the sake of brevity, I'm going to assume by now that you know how to do certain things like take a screen shot of your desktop. If you don't, refer to the previous pranks where I detail how to do everything.
1 - Take a screen shot of the desktop with an app or document opened in windowed mode, then paste the screen shot in paint, rotate it 180 degress, and then save it.
2 - Set that upside down screen shot as the wallpaper.
3 - Follow all of the "mouse hijinks" prank.
4 - Hide all desktop icons by right-clicking on the desktop, hovering over "View," then unchecking "Show desktop icons."
5 - Hide the taskbar by right-clicking on a blank section of the taskbar, then "Properties," then the box next to "Auto-hide the taskbar," and finally, the "Apply" button.
6 - Open a program or document in windowed mode and lay it partially over the window of the program/document that's a part of the screen shot wallpaper.
7 - Finally, follow the "upside-down desktop" prank.
The combination of these steps will have your victim so messed up that even the most seasoned Windows user would probably think they were hit with some sort of malware or script. Seriously. But it doesn't have to end here! If you can squeeze in the Dvorak prank along with some of the others to come, you'll soon be dishing out a massive amount of pain for your own twisted amusement! Mwah ha ha...
