An Indian discovered that nobody can create a folder with the name CON in Windows.. At Microsoft the whole Team couldn’t answer why this happened! Try yourself now. Try to create a new folder and rename it as “CON”. It will not accept the name and the previous name will appear again.

I tried to create the folder through DOS prompt and it gave me an error that the directory name is invalid.

invalid Directory

After researching a bit, I have found out that CON is the name of a device. You can check it’s status as show in the picture below:
