  1. The “con” trick is no mystery at all.
    In the Windows operating system, there are a number of reserved words that cannot be used as names. “con” is just one such word. Get over it.

    The 2nd trick doesn’t work in Windows 7. It obviously has something to do with the encoding. Get over it.

    The 3rd trick, well, I don’t have office, so I cant’ test it.

  2. Trick n. 1

    In old MS-DOS systems the CON: device refers to the CONsole. Even now, for example on Windows XP (7 and Vista don’t know), the command prompt manages the CON device for compatibility. Try this:

    1) open a command prompt
    2) type the following: copy con afile.txt
    3) type some words or multiple lines.
    4) press CTRL+Z and then press enter.

    You will find on your hard-disk a file named afile.txt containig what you have just written. What happened is that the characters you type are “piped” through the CON device and stored in a file.

    This is why CON is a reserved name for files.

    The incredible is that, at Microsoft, they do not know this 🙂

  3. The third one is used to test font types. I guarantee The people at Microsoft can tell you how and why it works.
