How to create CON Folder

Have any body tried out creating folders named nul, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, prn, con, com1, com2, com3, aux and so on…..
If you had tried it already, you would be very clear about his that “No one can create folders with those names specified above”, but the fact is we can create folders even in these names. But the way of creating those folders differ from the normal way, that’s it.
To create any one of the folder named nul, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, prn, con, com1, com2, com3 and aux, what you wanna do now is open-up a new command prompt and choose the path where you need to create the folder, then type the following command to create the folder.

C:\>mkdir\\.\c:\con

Now go to the C Drive and see the “con” folder there, also when you try to delete the “con” folder by right clicking on it and then selecting delete, it won’t work. You need to delete the Folder the same way as you created the folder and even for this you need to move to the command prompt, and type the following command, in-order to delete the folder from C Drive,…

C:\>rmdir\\.\c:\con
