1. Flip a computer display screen upside down.

For PCs, all you have to do is hit CTRL + ALT + down arrow (and the same combination with the up arrow will flip it back); on a Mac, open System Preferences and click Display while simultaneously holding down CTRL + Option. A new menu called Rotation should appear, and you can flip the display and save it or undo. It makes using your mouse an absolute pain in the ass.

6. Set a screenshot of their homescreen as wallpaper, and strategically move apps so they're repeatedly clicking on NOTHING.

7. Change all of the contacts in your friend's phone to the names of Harry Potter characters.

(Since this could be wicked time consuming, even just messing with their important contacts list can still wreak magical havoc). Bonus: Change their home phone to "Hogwarts."

13. Pull a Nathan Fielder, if you're feeling brave.
