    Cool Share Cool Tricks

    TRY!



    Trick#1

    Nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the
    Computer which can be named as "CON". This is something pretty

    Cool...and
    Unbelievable. ... At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn't answer why this happened !
    TRY IT NOW ,IT WILL NOT CREATE " CON " FOLDER


    Trick#2

    For those of you using Windows, do the following:


    1.) Open an empty notepad file

    2.) Type "Bush hid the facts" (without the quotes)
    3 .) Save it as whatever you want.
    4.) Close it, and re-open it.


    Trick#3

    Open Microsoft Word and type


    =rand (200, 99)


    And then press ENTER

    Then see ...

    What should happen with Trick #2. I tried it but it didn't work. Obviously I did something wrong.

    CON is a device name for the keyboard. You can't create a folder named CON because DOS/Windows will try to save that data to the keyboard.

    Here's something that demonstrates this:
    C:\>copy con file.txt
    This is some data I am typing into the file before I press <CONTROL-Z> to end data input.
    ^Z
    1 file(s) copied.
    C:\>
    In this trick, you are copying a file from the CON (short for console -- the keyboard) to a file named file.txt.

    ^Z is the character DOS/Windows uses as an END-OF-FILE marker.
