Weird stuff in Windows

Magic #1
It was 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

(this one is the best out of the three) 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? Confused?

works only in Windows 2000 and Windows XP

This is something pretty cool and neat…and unbelievable. .. 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.

    The fact that you can not create a folder named “con” is because it is a reserved file to represent the CONsole (monitor). This convention dates back to the days of MS-DOS and is not a secret. There are several others. See http://www.hoax-slayer.com/con-folder-name.shtml for more information.

    First one we can guess ( We know con means console)
    Second one I can’t guess
    Third one may be built in function to write something?
    My main concern is “How did you find these things”
