Windows Hack Lets You Play Video and Audio in Microsoft Excel: Slacksheet

 |  |  |  |  |  October 27, 2014


Many companies restrict access to certain apps and other software features to prevent people from goofing off. Redditor AyrA’s employer went further than that – his work computer has an application that monitors running processes. But smart slackers are tough to beat. AyrA made ExcelStuff, an Excel sheet that uses Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to access Windows Media Player. This way, his computer’s watchful eye only sees Excel running. What it doesn’t see is Excel playing Wall-E.
