This is a) simple to execute b) hilarious c) from our new friends at collegeinfogeek.com. Use to get your buddy back after he or she tampers with your Facebook status.

Ah, computers. Most college students spend a good portion of their day looking into these bright, glowing boxes, and a good percentage of them usually find ways to mess them up out of ignorance. Of course, a messed up computer is a problem; then again, every cloud has a silver lining… Watching a fellow bro freak out over a computer problem is, admittedly, quite entertaining (unless of course you work at a help desk). However, sometimes there are longs periods of time when there is a general lack of accidental computer mayhem to entertain you. In those times, you must create some mayhem of the non-accidental variety if you are to stave off boredom. Here are five evil, dirty, rotten, low-down computer pranks to help you do just that. We’ll start with an easy one. This prank tutorial assumes your bro is running Windows 7

Switch the Mouse Buttons

Switching a bro’s mouse buttons around is a great way to see him start jabbing forcibly at the mouse while simultaneously yelling “THIS IS NOT THE MOTHERF****G RIGHT CLICK BUTTON!!!”It’s also really, really simple.

  • Click Start and go to Control Panel.
  • Change the “View by” option in the top right corner from Category to Small Icons.
  • Go to Mouse.
  • Check the box to switch the primary and secondary buttons.
  • Click “Apply”.
  • Sit back and wait.

This is probably the least evil and least harmful trick here, but it’s still funny.
