I was wondering how to use Windows Forms' BackgroundWorker. I could find no uses for it. I already made an Winforms application using a BackgroundWorker, which calculated the Fibbonacci number at the place you entered in a Text box. But then.... the unexpected happened...



  • Is able to do many pranks onto the current directory, and most of them are reversible
    (as of 1.0) All of the 2 available pranks can be reverted :)
  • Completely safe, unless you rename your older sister's project folder
  • Messes only with the current directory and subdirectories


as of 1.1:

  • Mass-create files (Reversible)
  • Rename all files (Reversible)
  • Hide all files and folders (Reversible)
  • Folder maze (Unreversible!)

Known issues

  • (fixed in 1.1) The 'Rename all files' prank menu does not display all the files in the subfolders, but does all its actions on both the current directory and all subdirectories. CAUTION!


First version (1.0)

Everything else awaits for you to discover...
