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.
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:
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
- Open an empty notepad file
- Type the following sentence
Bush hid the facts
- Save it anywhere.
- Close it and open it again.
Open Microsoft Word and type the following
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER.
You’ll be amazed at what is generated out of no where 🙂 . Mine was 587 pages of junk text. What about yours?
