A few nifty tricks for Windows and Office users

This has been passed on to me, so I have no idea if this is old stuff but here it goes.

Truth 1: One cannot save a 'CON' folder in Windows - sans the apostrophe. Well I tried this one and really why can't I save a folder named con? What if I'm an ex-con and I want to remember all my buddies inside the jail, and I want them all to have a special place in my Windows OS? Ohh I get it, Con stands for convict and we do know that con-victs shouldn't be near a computer. So Microsoft may have decided to save their OS a few lines.

Truth 2:
open notepad
type "bush hid the facts" without quotation marks
don't press "enter" save the file
close notepad
open the file again

And byah! You'll going to see scribbled writings, as if bush really 'hid' the facts. And what are those facts? That bush hid the fact in notepad.

Truth 3: One MS Word, type in rand(1,1), press enter. That magical phrase will soon appear.

If you have any nice tricks for Windows, then share away.
