My fake folder trick worked!!

My friend used to borrow my memory stick and I thought to trick him for fun. I created a fake folder (actually its just a file with 3 lines of code) called “my secrets” and saved on my memory stick. When returning back the memory stick he asked me “hey! how did you lock the folder?”, and I asked him to visit my website. :p

So, Do you also want to fool or test your mates? Follow the steps below:

  • Open notepad (Click start > Run > type Notepad.exe)
  • Copy the following code to Notepad
    [Shell]
    Command=2
    IconFile=explorer.exe,3
  • Save the file as “my secrets.scf”  (with quotes, this is to prevent Notepad from appending .txt extension)

That’s it!
