IT Magic from Microsoft - Part II



Magic # 1
  • In windows we cant create folders with names CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9 directly from GUI. This is because, DOS device names are reserved words, and cannot be used as folder or file names.
  • if you still want to create the folders :..... Goto command prompt by typing cmd in the run menu. Type the following command to create the folders with these names… md \\.\\\con
  • The path may be like c:\abcd\xyz\… anything Similiarly remove the folder by replacing md with rd No Magic only Logic… UNC(Universal Naming Convention) is the Logic.


Magic # 2
  • Bush hid the facts is the common name for a bug present in so far all versions of Microsoft Notepad (since Windows 2000), which misinterpret a file in Windows-1252 or similar encoding as UTF-16.
  • While "Bush hid the facts" is the sentence that is most forwarded on the Internet, it does not exclusively occur with that phrase. The bug can be triggered by many sentences, including those that follow a particular
  • structure: one word with 4 letters, two or more words with 3 letters, one word with 5 letters.
  • Some phrases that will trigger this oddity are "畂 桳 栠 摩 琠 敨 映 捡 獴",
  • "Bill can not dance", "John has the parts", "This app can break", "This pad has bugzs", "Feel the new power", "Matrix can not lie", and even long phrases like "Einstein's thought regarding mathematics motivated Dhilung Kirat thinkin mathematics wonderfully amazing languagez".
  • The bug occurs when such a string is entered into Notepad (with no other characters) and then saved as a text file. Upon reloading the file into Notepad, the text will be replaced with nine Chinese characters, or squares if the language pack has not been installed. To retrieve the original text, bring up the "Open a file" dialog box, select "ANSI" in the "Encoding" list box, and open the file.
  • The bug appeared for the first time in Windows 2000 but was not discovered immediately. It was discovered in early 2004 [1] and has since risen in popularity on the Internet.[citation needed] This bug occurs when a file where only the above mentioned string is present. If the file were to be modified by clearing the content and repasting the same string, saved and reopened, this bug will not be reproduced. Notepad misinterprets the encoding of the file when it is re-opened. If the file is originally saved as "Unicode" rather than "ANSI"
  • the text displays correctly. Older versions of Notepad such as those that came with Windows 95, 98 or ME do not include Unicode support so the error does not occur.


Magic # 3
  • =rand (200, 99)
  • this is not bug or error. it is a feature of MS WORD providing a random paragraph writing for testing different formats.
  • how do you test a feature of paragraph formatting if have to type a long paragraph, it gives you that feature
