“CON” Folder On Desktop

Posted on: September 4, 2007

This is very common question in our mind that why we can’t create a folder with name CON, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3,COM1 to COM9 and LPT1 to LPT9……..

But here we will create folder with these name…….

you need to follow these steps carefully

STEP1: G oto command prompt

STEP2: and type md \\.\\”c:\con” (with quotes)

The above command will create the folder named “con” in Drive C:

To create that folder in your desktop (for Windows XP) replace the ‘c:\con’ with the FULL PATH of your Desktop, Below is an Example:

md \\.\\”C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\con” (Where USER is your USERNAME)

(You MUST specify the full path within double quotes [“] If it contains spaces)

In Windows 98, your Desktop path would be : C:\windoiws\Desktop (where C: is the drive letter if your Windows installation)

That is all about creating the folder.

BUT DON’T STOP HERE
Because after creating such a folder, you can’t delete it by simply pressing the DEL key.
To delete this kind of folder, use the same command replacing MD with RD. For example:

rd \\.\\”c:\con” (with quotes for path containing spaces)
