How To Create A Folder Named CON

Hi friends, in my previous posts, I told you some keywords which can't be given to a folder, i.e. a folder can't support those names. I am once again telling you those names through the image below:

Folder Rename Trick
Now, I am going to tell you how to create the folders which have the name like CON, PRN, AUX etc. I have two methods for this.

METHOD: 1.
1. Create a new folder and rename it, type it's name as CON and press enter. You will see the following error and windows will deny to rename the folder.

2. Now once again, rename the folder as CON and press alt+0144 and then press enter.

Yuhu.... Your folder is now created.

In the same way, you can CREATE A FOLDER WITHOUT ANY NAME, just rename the folder and type nothing, just press alt+0144 and press enter. Now you will get an unnamed folder.

HOW TO DELETE THE FOLDER
Simply select the folder and hit delete from your keyboard, or right click on the folder and click delete. That's it.

METHOD: 2.

1. Go to start menu and open command prompt. Simply type cmd in Run Box and press enter to open command prompt.
2. Now type MD \\.\D:\CON
Here, D: is the drive where we are going to create our folder. You can change the drive also, if you wish to change.
3. Check out the drive, you will see the folder with name CON.

HOW TO DELETE THE FOLDER
If you try to delete the folder created by this method, windows won't delete it normally. To delete this folder, follow the steps below:
1. Open CMD and type RD \\.\D:\CON
2. Check out the drive, your folder is deleted now.

Note: If you are facing any problem while deleting the folder, delete it from SAFE MODE of windows.

G+
