Things you can’t do in Windows

Well we all know that windows is very user friendly because of its easy accessibility and world wide popularity. Most of the people using any windows OS think that they can do anything on windows, but that’s not so.

For eg:-

Try to create a folder in Windows with either of these names–
“con” or “nul” or “Aux” or “Lpt1”.
Windows will not let you create ….
This s because these refer 2 some well known ports….
-con corresponds to the console
-Lpt1 corresponds to printer and so on….

well dat was common but how about this ? Try these more.. The full list that is not available so easily..

CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9.

Cool… isn’t it.

Note:- This trick works with all the version of windows.
