Let Your Computer Do The Magic; Make It Welcome You




Great impressions make the largest difference.

We live in a world where impressions can make a lot of difference in a short given time such as a cool high school dude displaying his new Macbook (Talk about impressions) in front of his peers. Well, this is not the kind of impression am talking about because it may not last for long, in as much as there is a “Slot” around with the right funds in the pocket.

Cutting straight to the chase, don’t you think the impression will be more profound if it is your laptop that is creating the difference? Like your laptop hitting you up with a hello with its computerized voice, followed by an echo of your name every time you power it on.

Well, the ways of smooth operators are thought to be full of mysteries but the truth still lies in the fact that their ways are actually full of tricks, like the trick am about to share with you.

What this trick will do will definitely amaze your folks because it will wake your computer or laptop to welcome you with a greeting, like; Welcome to your PC, Olusegun!

If you don’t mind, here is the trick.

Click on Start. Navigate to All Programs, Accessories, and Notepad.

Copy and paste the exact code that is given below.

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

     3.  Replace Username with your own name.
4.  Click on File Menu, Save As, select All Types in Save as Type option, and save the file as Welcome.vbs or “*.vbs”.
5.  Copy the saved file.
6.  Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (in Windows XP) and to C:\Users\ {User-Name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (in Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista) if C: is your System drive.

Now, when next you start your computer, Windows will welcome you in its own computerized voice.

Note: For best results, it is recommended to change sound scheme to No Sounds.
You can change the sound scheme to No Sounds by following the steps given below:-

Go to Control Panel.

Then click on Switch to Classic View.

Then Click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

Then Click on the Sounds Tab.

Select No Sounds from the Sound Scheme option.

If you wish to save your Previous Sound Scheme, you can save it by clicking Yes in the popup menu.

Click on OK.

Try it yourself to see how it works. In my personal opinion, this is an excellent trick. Whenever I start my PC in front of anybody and the PC welcomes me, the fellow is left wondering how brilliant a computer do I have.
