Microsoft’s Crazy Facts

MAGIC #1


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, couldn’t answer why this happened!
TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE “CON” FOLDER
 
 

 

MAGIC #2
This is something pretty cool and neat…and unbelievable. ..
At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened!
Try it out yourself…
Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER

 

 

MAGIC #3

For those of you using Windows, do the following:
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.
Is it just a really weird bug?
You can try the same thing above with another sentence “this app can break”
 
 

 

Explanation for Magic #1:

In windows the folder name and the special system variables share the same interface, so when you create a folder with a system variable name it will consider that folder already exist!!
These special system variables are available irrespective of path
You cannot create a folder with these names also:
CON, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3,COM1 to COM9 and LPT1 to LPT9….
CON means console, COM1 means serial port 1, LPT1 means parallel port 1
