    Talking Three things that even Microsoft can't explain!

    Three things that even Microsoft can't explain!

    MAGIC #1

    An Indian 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!

    This one doesn't work with Windows 7



    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…..!
