3 weird facts about Microsoft Windows

Here are 3 weird facts about Windows, that nobody can explain:

1. Nobody can create a folder named "Con".

Try to create anywhere on your hard disk a folder called "Con" (without the quotes). Go to a location on your hard disk, right click, choose "New" and then select "Folder" from the menu that appears. Name the folder "Con" (without quotes) and hit Enter. You?ll see that the folder won?t be named "Con". It will be "New folder"

2. A text file made with Notepad, with the following content : "Bush hid the facts" (without quotes) won?t display the actual text.

Go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Notepad . Write in Notepad the following text : "Bush hid the facts" (without quotes) then Save the file and exit Notepad. Now go to the text file you created and open it. You?ll see that the text you just wrote and save won?t show.

3. Write in Word this : "=rand(200,99)" (without the quotes) and witness the magic.

Open Microsoft Word and on the first line write : "=rand(200,99)" (without the quotes) and hit Enter key. See the magic.

  1. I accept the CON folder cannot be created like a normal folder but CON folder can be created using command prompt.

  2. It is amazing!
