Microsoft's Crazy Facts

Microsoft 's Crazy Facts


Nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as "CON".

This is something pretty cool... and unbelievable... but believe it...

At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn't answer why this happened!



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


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

OS Schedule Shut Down

Using Task Scheduler to schedule the computer to shut down and restart at a specific time

  • Click Start, Run and type control schedtasks
  • Double-click Add Scheduled Task. The Scheduled Task Wizard starts
  • Click Next
  • Under Click the program you want Windows to run, click Browse
  • In the Select Program to Schedule dialog box, locate the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder, locate and click the Shutdown.exe file, and then click Open
  • Under Perform this task, specify a name for the task and how frequently you want this task to run, and then click Next
  • Under Select the time and day you want this task to start, specify a start time and date for the task, and then click Next
  • Type the user name and password to run this task under, and then click Next
  • Click to select the Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish check box, and then click Finish
  • Click the Task tab. In the Run box, specify any additional parameters that you want to use with Shutdown.exe. Click OK

Important: In the 10th step, you need to add the parameters for the Shutdown.exe command. To immediately shutdown the system (0 second timeout), the command-line would be:

shutdown.exe -s -t 00

To reboot the system immediately, this command:

shutdown.exe -r -t 00

For additional help, type Shutdown /? at the Command Prompt. Scheduling the Shutdown.exe without any parameters will not help. It will just execute with a exit code 0 (success)
