Make a folder that has no name



HOW TO MAKE THE CON FOLDER




The name con, lpt1, aux and a dozen other names are
reserved for some windows stuff. So we are not allowed to
make folders with these names.


A folder made with this name
is not deletable, since the system sees it to be in use by a device
connected with the system, like printers or other.


Nevertheless, there are ways to make folders with these names
this is one way to  do this in explorer.


Step 1: Create a folder as normal.


step 2: right click on the folder and click on rename


Step 3: Do this key combination : alt 0160


Step 3: Enter the name con,aux or any of the reserved names


Step 4: press enter and you're done


Only that a folder created this way can be deleted normally
