Creating a CON Folder

An Indian national discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as "CON".

This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable... it can't work with Words, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF files.

The whole team in Microsoft, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why this happened. So, tell all your friends.

Try it now, it will not create " CON " Folder.
Try to rename the New Folder as CON or con, it will not accept ............ ........ .......

Silly person - it's because the name CON is reserved as a system device, just like PRN is also!

Comes from the old days of DOS.

Convivialdingo - this blog posting was posted to "CON" readers but in actual fact, it really does open the eyes of a non-computeer software savvy person
