Friday, July 27, 2012

Making your Computer welcome you with a special message is a cool trick, you can make it speak your Name, say Welcome or anything you want. This trick that we are going to use, is a very short Copy/Paste Script based on Visual Basic Scripting that will be compiled using Notepad (saved as .vbs file). After doing so, that file will be placed in startup folder, so that it will be executed every time the computer starts. This hack have been extracted from the post Best 5 Funny Notepad Tricks.

How to Make your PC Say your NAME at Startup

1) Open up Notepad (Start>Run>Notepad)

2) Paste the following code inside it:

Dim speaks, speech
speaks="Welcome to your PC Username"
Set speech=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
speech.Speak speaks

3) Change "Welcome to your PC Username" with anything suitable for you (e.g: Welcome Razor )

4) Click File>Save as... and save it as welcome.vbs (important .vbs extension)

5) Now test it by double clicking the Welcome.vbs file, it should say the text that you specified in step 3.

6) After testing it, let's put it in startup folder. Go to the Startup folder and Paste the file there:

If Windows XP Go to:  C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\StartMenu\Programs\Startup

If Win 7/Vista Go to
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

7) Done! After pasting the welcome.vbs file in the startup folder, you will here the text at the next Startup.
