How To: Make Text Boxes in Windows.

This topic is nothing new to anyone who knows how to code, but some people out there who aren't so tech-savvy may wonder "how can I make one of those?".

Well here's how.

A Windows text box is simply a notepad (.txt) file, saved as a VBScript (.vbs) file with some code in it (don't worry, nothing too hard involved!).

To make it simple, here's a list of step-by-step instructions:

  1. Open Notepad.
  2. Type: x=msgbox("Your type here",6+16,"Message box name here")
  3. Change the 'Your type here' and 'Message box name here' to whatever you'd like.
  4. Click enter & repeat for as many text boxes you wish to appear (optional).
  5. Click "File", "Save As...".
  6. In the "File Name" box, give it a name, BUT DON"T SAVE YET!
  7. Type .vbs after the name (& delete .txt if present).
  8. Choose where you want to save it and save!
Now all you have to do is navigate to the file and select it! There's your text box!
