I just found out about this stuff, I think it's called tab browsing or something. Some fireball or silverfox thing.

As far as pranks I like swithching the n and m keys on my co-workers keyboards.

Yeah the backspace isn't high-tech or anything but I was hoping this thread would go a different direction, I should know better by now though.

I like to cover my whole laptop with saran-wrap. That way when I'm done with my "session", I don't have to clean it up.

Windows Key + L = Logs you out but still leaves all your programs running so no one can mess with your shit when you walk away

When you go to click "Turn Off Computer" if you hold down the Shift Key, Hibernate replaces Standby as a list of options

Windows Key + E = Opens Windows Explorer
**HINT HINT** If you walk up to someones computer and hold this down for more than a second...it will open up as many Explorer windows as possible or til the system runs outta memory or the computer locks up

press the windows key and M at the same time and the porn you are looking at will disappear from your screen as your boss/wife walks up.
