Normally you can't make a folder with
/\:*<>"? in its name. and also you can't name a folder
LPT1 and .... and also you can't have two folder with equal name in a single directory.
I THINK I found a way to break all the above rules!
You just need to build a
New String in the below path of registry :
And name it
@WhatEverYouWant (For example
@x). Then set its value the name that you want to have for your directory! (For example
\/?:*<>| and so on).
Then close the registry and create a new folder. it name the
@x (The name that you selected for the string before) and hit enter. the name automatically change to the value of the string that you already created in Registy.
If you create a new folder again in the same path and set its name to
@x again, you will have the second folder with the same name!
The above way works fine in Windows XP. I want to know if this is a bug or it is a feature? And what is the equivalent way in Windows-7?
This is output of
dir command (When I was created just two
con folder on desktop) :
