Windows Vista Easter eggs
Vista's hidden secrets
In every Windows Operating system that has ever been made there have always been some hidden secrets for you to find, Windows Vista is no exception and some little quirks can be found if you know where to look.
I have found a few but I know there are a lot more and I will add them after I find them and test them out.
The default boot screen of Windows Vista is a black screen containing just a progress bar and the text "Microsoft Corporation". Those of you who are tired of this boring default look of the Windows Vista Boot Screen, can enable the hidden boot screen.
Aurora Boot Screen
Here is how you can enable the Aurora Boot Screen in Windows Vista:
1. click on the start orb and type in "MSCONFIG" in the searchbox and press Enter
2. once the System Configuration tool loads, click on the Boot tab
3. under Boot Options check "No GUI boot"
4. click apply and then OK and restart your computer to see the new boot screen.
Sounds and Hidden Music
1. Press Win logo key and R. Then it will open Run.
2. Type in "Media" (without quotation marks)
3. It will get a folder of Windows sounds and hidden midi music.
My favorite hidden song is "Town".
What Time is it?
Open notebook, then type in" .LOG" (all caps without quotes)
Save using any file name and on the scroll down menu choose all files.
Close out notebook, open the file again and you will find the date and time.
This one is pretty cool
Go to start menu, then all programmes, then accessories, then command prompt.
When the screen comes up type in "ribbons.scr /p65552" (without the quotes) you should also try these ones too.
"aurora.scr /p65552" (without the quotes)
"bubbles.scr /p65552" (without the quotes)
to close these screens you will then require to open the task manager (Ctrl, Alt and delete keys at the same time and close the programs in end task.)
These are all I could find for now but when I find more I will add them.
