Make Your Computer Greet You

You can even make Windows Welcome you with a custom voice message at Startup.

To use this trick, follow the instructions given below:

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

2. Copy and paste the exact code 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
5. Copy the saved file. 
6. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (in Windows XP), and for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 go to C:\Users\ {User-Name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup 

Note: If C: is your System drive. AppData is a hidden folder. So, you will need to select showing hidden folders in Folder options to locate it.

7. Paste the file.

Now when the next time 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:

  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Click on Switch to Classic View.
  3. Click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
  4. Click on the Sounds Tab.
  5. Select No Sounds from the Sound Scheme option.
  6. If you wish to save your Previous Sound Scheme, you can save it by clicking Yes in the popup menu.
  7. Click on OK.
Try it yourself to see how it works. In my personal opinion, this is an excellent trick.
