Unexplained Interesting Facts About Microsoft Windows

We all know that Microsoft Windows is the best Operating system till now and it booms in market. But many of you are not aware that it has many interesting bugs which are still Unexplained. Here are some Interesting facts about Microsoft Windows. 


We have found that we can’t create a folder anywhere on the Computer which can be named as “CON“. This is something funny and inexplicable? At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this happened! TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE A “CON” FOLDER

Not only CON, we cannot create any of these - CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9.


If  you are using Windows, then do the following:

  • Open an empty notepad file
  • Type “Bush hid the facts” (without the quotes)
  •  Save it as whatever you want.
  • Close it, and re-open it.

Noticed the weird bug? What you see isn’t what you typed. This is an easter egg. Or maybe even Microsoft’s programmers hate Bush. That’s what we knew. But the truth is that all 4-3-3-5 strings work. So if you type “this app can break”. The same results will come. It appears to be bug from Microsoft which has been fixed in Vista.


Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER And see the magic !!

Again this is something funny and can’t be explained? At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened!
It was discovered by a Brazilian. Try it out yourself?


You must have remember the terrorist attack at World Trade Center. Did you know that a flight number from one of the planes that hit one of the two WTC towers on 9/11. It was Q33N.

In Notepad / Word Pad or MS Word, type that flight number i.e Q33N. Increase the font size to 72. Change the font to Wingdings. You will be amazed by the findings!!!

    the reason why you cannot create files like con, lpt1 etc is because these represent each device .

    con represents console
    lpt1 represents line printer 1
    com1 represents communication port 1
    prn is the default printer.
