Some practical jokes are kept up the whole day before the victim realizes what has happened to them. Most April Fool jokes are in good fun and not meant to harm anyone. The most clever April Fool joke is the one where everyone laughs, especially the person upon whom the joke is played.


Some popular pranks:

Replacing salt in the sugar bowl at breakfast. Putting orange juice in the milk carton. Turning all their socks inside out the night before. With brown crayon drawing brown streaks in their underwear.

Attaching a small piece of tape to the bottom of the mouse so it does not work. Disconnecting speakers. Change default hardware for speaker settings.
More advanced: In Windows Go to Start Programs > Control Panel > Mouse and swap the button controls

Setting the alarm clock ahead one hour and allowing the victim to think they have slept in. or setting the clock to be early by a couple of hours.
More Advanced: Turing off the power to the house/apartment at the electrical breaker box.

New secretary (second day on the job) answers telephone as is told in official tones: "This is the phone company. We are testing a new circuit wiring scheme in your offices. Please keep everyone off the phones for the next 10 minutes. We will be verifying the correct wiring of your system by passing HOT STEAM through the wires. Instruct your employees to place their phones on the floor, or, better yet, wrap them in towels to avoid scalding themselves. We will advise you when the tests are complete *click*" After momentary panic, the secretary begins a frenzied "Paul Revere" routine, running from desk to desk while glancing frequently at her watch. Just as the 10 minutes are about up, she bursts into her boss's office (while he is in the midst of an important long-distance call) and, screaming, grabs the receiver from his hand and flings the whole phone under his desk...

Tell someone you can pin a glass of water to the wall -- a real glass, not a paper cup, using an ordinary straight pin. Naturally they won't believe, so you set out to prove it.

Get a glass of water and a pin. Hold the glass up to the wall and start to pin it up. And then drop the pin. You've got the glass in position just right, so you ask your victim real nice to get the pin for you. When they bend down to pick it up, dump the water on their head.

This works especially well when there's a crowd of people watching. It can also be very dangerous for the joker, so be careful if you try it. Check Out more April Fools Practical Jokes on Friends here

Hit print screen and it copies a picture into a photo program - I used MS Paint. Paste the picture and save it as a bitmap into their My Picture folder. Then go to the desktop settings and set that picture as their wallpaper. On the desktop create a folder and drag the toolbar and the icons in a folder. Now when they sit down at the computer they can't get any of their icons or shortcuts to work (because it's just a picture of them) - it'll keep them busy for hours - you can even rotate the picture so their desktop is upside down.
