Do you want to chat or just send a private message to your friend, family member or office mates without using any fancy program? Back in college me and my friends uses this trick to talk inside the classroom because we were not allowed to download or use any messenger services. A lot of this kind of tutorial are not working because they are missing something. I will show you on how you can make it work.

  • Open notepad
  • Copy and Paste the batch codes below

@echo off
:A
Cls
echo PCTechNotes MESSENGER
set /p n=Friend:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A

  • Save it as “MSG.BAT” or to any file name you prefer but make sure that you include “.bat” after the filename.

Don’t run it yet… because it will not work. follow these procedures to make it work.
