Some Interesting and funny tricks for windows
« on: May 23, 2013, 04:13 pm »
Feel free to add more if you like. Anyway, here are a few:

Folder names

You cannot name folders the following:

PRN
AUX
NUL
LPT1
COM1
CON
go ahead, try it.

Events
Notice: This only works on older versions of windows
A flight number from one of the planes that hit one of the WTC towers on 9/11 was named "Q33N". In Notepad, WordPad or MS Word, type that number i.e Q33N.Then increase the font size to 72. Change the font to Wingdings. The results are surprising.

Other

Open Microsoft Word and type =rand (200, 99) And then press ENTER. See the magic?

The 9/11 thing doesn't work anymore because Microsoft got too many complaints.

I tried it on an old xp not that long ago and it worked, probably does not work on newer versions anymore

I can safely say it doesn't work on Vista or 7.
