Create CON folder in Windows operating system.

Hi friends have you tried to create CON folder in Windows operating system. if not just try.



The reason for this is that the following words are reserved words in DOS. Windows completely based on DOS(Disk Operating System). Try and create a folder with any of the following names:


CONPRNAUXCLOCK$NULCOM1COM2
COM3COM4COM5COM6COM7COM8COM9
LPT1 LPT2 LPT3 LPT4LPT5 LPT6 LPT7
LPT8LPT9


But we can create using below commands in DOS(Command Prompt).

Start -> Run -> CMD

c:/>mkdir \\.\c:\con

Remove folder

c:/>rmdir \\.\c:\con

  1. I remember back in the day you could crash a Windows 95/98 computer by writing a batch script that tried to access c:\con\con

    Those were the days :)

  3. Good memories where you'd just open the game from DOS, because windows took to long to open.
