on first prank, the keyboard switch, try changing the keyboard from standard to Dvorak format...
it's usually under Regional and Language settings in Windows Vista and 7...
it's quick and easy and somewhat benign prank as it's very easy to figure out and fix...

Just a quick note, i tryed out the keyboard extender. I changed a ton of keys and when i tried to reopen the program it would not start. I tried uninstalling the program and this left half the keys on my keyboard useless. If this happens to you just restart the computer after uninstalling.

I have Xpadder for my computer so that I can program controls for my Xbox 360 controller to add support for games that don't have it.

Now before you start back with K/M is superior I just want to explain how the software works... And how you can use the software to prank people.
Xpadder doesn't add support to the game, it emulates the K/M. This means that I can set my wireless 360 controller, which has a range of 30 feet, to function as the mouse. I can also program any function I want, from CTRL+ALT+Delete to ALT+TAB and anything else out there, so that I can really screw with people's heads.
I did this a while back actually. I was helping a buddy of mine do a school project by making a video. Xpadder was already running and I just turned on my controller. I subtly moved the right thumbstick, default mouse emulation, and racked in the laughs as my friend shook the mouse, then lifted the mouse, then shook it again in frustration.
Good times.

One easy one is to close all windows, then press PrtSc (or Shift+PrtScr depending on your PC).. That'll take a screenshot of the desktop. Now, Click Start->Run and type MSPaint, then Ctrl+V the screenshot into Paint. Ctrl+S to save it, save it as C:\desktop.bmp or something.
Now close paint, rearrange all the icons on the desktop so they were'nt where they used to be, auto-hide the task bar by right-clicking and selecting Properties->AutoHide...
Now right-click on the background and click personalise (Doze7) or Properties then Background (XP?).. and change the background image to the screenshot.
Et voila. When the user returns, they'll be clicking on 'icons' on their desktop.. but it's just an image :-) You have to do it to fully appreciate the hilarity.
