    Cool Share Cool Tricks



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

    Unbelievable. ... At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn't answer why this happened !


    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.


    Open Microsoft Word and type

    =rand (200, 99)

    And then press ENTER

    Then see ...

  8. 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.
    1 file(s) copied.
    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.
