    Hello All...

    I know that the answers to the questions that I am asking are there on the forum,. but it wud take me just too long to search for them separately. Still, plz take out some time & give me the answers...

    1. What are the 4 names which I can NOT give to a folder in Windows?

    2. What is the maximum number of folders that I can create one-within-the-other in Windows?
    (Is there any trick to do this in Windows?)

    3. What is the maximum number of pages that a word document in windows can have?

    4. How do I create a file with NO name??

    Looking forward to answers...

    TiA

    Press <ALT> key and type 0160 using only Numpad keys. Then u'll hv no filename :wink:

    PS: There r many other combinations too which can be used in the same manner to give strange or no names to the files...

    U can save files like that using ASCII Codes like Alt+194 ..This doesnt work in NTFS partitions though. There was this trick i used to do when i used to use win 98 .. i use to rename my personal folder in the dos command using the ascii code and make it inaccessible. if u want that trick , do the following.

    Suppose U have a folder named PERSONAL in a FAT32 partition and u want to make it inaccesible , do this.

    Open the DOS Prompt and go to the location of the folder. If its located in D:\M\PERSONAL then goto D:\M\ and type REN PERSONAL ALT+194M and press Enter. Make sure u press ALT+194 together and you can use any character after that like i have used "m" above. When you press ALT+194 together u will see this character "┬" . and ya use only the NUMPAD keys for pressing 194. it wont work with the other keys.

    It will get renamed. Now try accessing it from windows and you will get the msg that the folder does not exist.

    Now if you want to access it u will have to rename it back to any name u want using the DOS prompt. so go there again and type REN ALT+194 PERSONAL and press enter. it will be back to normal.

    Hope this info helped.
