How to Make EXE Files Using Notepad

25 Nov


Step 1:
Open Notepad on your computer. Notepad is located in the “Accessories” folder of the computer’s “Program Files”.

Step 2:
Hold down the “Alt” key and use the number pad to type in every 3-digit combinations from 000 to 999. After each 3-digit combination, release the “Alt” key.

Step 3:
Make notes on what keys produce what symbols. You can make a list of all of the 3-digit combinations or just a list of the ones you need. In Notepad, these combinations are the only way to get certain symbols.

Step 4:
Type the “exe” file for the program you want to create from the programming language into Notepad. Type the file in C++ programming language. Use the “Alt” and the 3-digit combinations to create symbols that do not appear on the keyboard but that you need in the program.

Step 5:
Save the file as a text file until you complete the “exe” program. Be aware that it may take a long time to type every line of code in the “exe” program.

Step 6:
Click on “File” and then choose “Save.” In the extension drop-down menu, choose “exe.” Name the file and click the “Save” button. Locate the file you saved and double-click it to run the “exe” file.
