Here are some of the unsolved mysterious things involving the worlds most used
OS "Windows" .One day i got a mail stating that......
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, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened!
TRY IT NOW !!
This is not the first time I listen about this funny question that "why we can't create a folder with name 'CON' , and I’m sure most of you also try to make folder "CON" just now after reading the title of article ! if no,then go and 1st try it .... If you try creating a folder named CON, as the mail claims, it’ll get renamed automatically to New Folder. But there is no mystery behind this, and the team at Microsoft very well knows the reason for this. :-)
Before we proceed further, let me tell you a small secret you can’t even create a folder named PRN, AUX, NUL and many others.
The reason you can’t create a folder with these names is because these are reserved keywords used by DOS. The below screen-shot taken from Microsoft’s website shows a list of reserved keywords in DOS.
If you try creating a folder with any of these names, the name automatically changes back to the default “New Folder”. And this is what has caused the confusion. Instead of automatically renaming the folder, had an explanatory warning message popped up.
Here are Some of the Other Mysteries
1.Go to notepad and type Bush hid the facts. After which, save your work anywhere
with any name and close notepad. Then re-open notepad and open your previously
saved file and look what appears.
2.Open Microsoft Word then type: =rand (200, 99) and press ENTER. By now
I bet you’re seeing something strange that not even Bill Gates and his team can explain.
Bush trying these things… haha
