# An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER named as “CON” in XP os. When questioned, microsoft guys were not able to explain but somehow made everyone believe that “CON” is short for “CONsole”. We can’t create a folder named con because it is a DEVICE NAME! Same to com1 or com2. But strange thing is even folder named “PRN” cannot be created .At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this happened even now it is a mystery!

#There r 2 more strange stuff with notepad.Linux_XP

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.

As u can see all characters are hidden.Any sentence with 4 words and 4-3-3-5 being no of letters in each word the result will be the same. How wierd it is?

#1. open notepad
2. write ‘.LOG’ (without quotes)
3. save the file (not SAVE AS, just plain save), any name is valid
4. close the file
5. open it

you’ll notice windows has inserted an entry containing hour and date.

#There is a strange stuff with Windows word too.

Open Microsoft Word and type¬† “=rand (200, 99)” without quotes and press enter.

Where did you get that from?

Similarly there are plenty of such wierd stuffz about windows which are still unanswered.
