4. Hit Backspace Continuously 


We need the backspace button, but what we wish is to annoy someone and make it press itself again and again, mechanically it would require some work on our part. It would become a lot more easier if we use the following code. Paste the below code in notepad and save it with .vbs extension. For e.g.- "back.vbs"


MsgBox "Let's go back a few steps"

Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
do
wscript.sleep 100
wshshell.sendkeys "{bs}"
loop

5. Hit Enter Continuously 


In Trick No. 4 we have seen the procedure for automatically hitting of backspace button. This trick is quite similar to that of previous one. In this the Enter key will be pressed automatically. Paste the below code in notepad and save it with .vbs extension. For e.g.- "enter.vbs"


         MsgBox "Let's access everything"
      Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      do
      wscript.sleep 100
      wshshell.sendkeys "{enter}"
      loop
