Windows Unsolved Mysteries !

| |

Hi today i will share a few cool and mysterious things.  I hope you all like this article .
  Here are some of the unsolved mysterious things  involving the worlds most used
  OS "Windows" .One day i got a mail stating that......

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. :-)

Why is it not possible to create a folder named CON ?

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. 

Hope you enjoyed this article :)
