Cannot Create Windows Folder Named Con

An Indian discovered that nobody can create a

Reserved name warning





It is in fact perfectly true that you cannot create a folder named "CON", nor can you rename an existing folder to "CON". However, there is no mystery surrounding this restriction whatsoever. The "team" at Microsoft, and a great many others besides, know perfectly well why you cannot name a folder "CON". "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. Other reserved names are:
  • PRN
  • AUX
  • NUL
  • LPT1
  • COM1
  • Potential drive letter - A: to Z:
  • A number of others



FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as "CON".

This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable... At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why this happened!

TRY IT NOW !!

IT WILL NOT CREATE "CON " FOLDER.......instead it will name it as new folder....TRY IT !!!"
