"Create a folder named CON in windows." - This is really no more a riddle.
I had read about this and always kept thinking that this is one of that windows reserved key works non accessibility bull shit. But some 1 year ago a friend of mine brought forward this topic in some rubbish chat and i hung on to it. I had some idea about how to achieve it, but he never agreed so i just left it there.
But now i again came across the same topic in some dumb email chain and thought about really implementing it...
By the way...This is the mail i got...
"An Indian discovered that 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 "
outright dumb idea....:) not the 'unable to create the folder' part...but the part where it is mentioned that an Indian found it...:)
So any way here is the implementation....
CREATE your own CON...
you need to use the DOS prompt
we can use the basic dos make directory command
You can find the folder named 'con' in the C drive.
if u want to delete the folder
I had once thought about a trick to create this using power point instead of dos. But that was 3 years ago. Now i need to again think about the logic.
Anyway....u guys enjoy....
