Microsoft Tricks



Things that MICROSOFT Could not Explain!TRY this....

MAGIC #1
Found that nobody can 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

MAGIC #2
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.
Noticed the weird bug? No one can explain!

MAGIC #3
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?
Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER And see the magic?..!

Magic #4
Did you know that a flight number from one of the planes that hit one of the two WTC towers on 9/11 was Q33N. In Notepad / WordPad or MS Word, type that flight number i.e Q33N. Increase the font size to 72. Change the font to Wingdings. ..... u will be amazed by the findings!!!

These are mostly coding issues rather than magic and have been doing the rounds since 2008 but they are fun if you try them out first then read the explanations below:




SPOILER




*************************************************************


1 “CON” and a number of other character strings are in fact reserved names that go back to the days of DOS and cannot be used to name folders or files.

2 If the file is originally saved as “Unicode” rather than “ANSI” the text displays correctly.

3 is a coding test known as a pangram.

4 Hoaxslayer have looked into this one in depth.
