You Can't Do It !


You can not make any folder named any of the following :

CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9

And many more...

Reason :
This is because these are windows inbuilt
'Reserved Device Names' .
Just avoid these words and name anything else !

I CAN DO IT!

Go to RUN, type cmd. go to desktop path if u need, just type: md .\con\

you will find the con folder in desktop.

or

right click on desktop, select newfolder, hold alt key & press 255 in numeric keypad & now type the CON or PRN etc

it will create for you..CON means Console...these are reservered ports...

another method to make a folder named con etc.

just create a folder rename it click
alt + 1060 keep pressing on by one on numeric

then write con

simple !!!!

But using alt+0160 and writing 'con' won't do !

Because alt+0160 creates a space and then u write con, i.e. you made ' con' but you have to make 'con' !
