    Hey, i found out a cool thing on the net and would like to share wid u IGTians...

    If you want to create a folder with blank name, do the following...

    1. Create a folder with any name..
    2. Rename it and type ALT+255 (From your Number pad).
    3. Click enter

    A folder has been created which has no name.......

    Isn't it cool??:rule: :rock:

    Yeah .. Its because ASCII value of blank character is 255 ..

    Also check this out ..

    Create a new folder with the name X.
    Open the command prompt and rename it to one of the following:

    .{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} (= My Computer)
    .{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103} (= My Documents)
    .{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D} (= My Network Places)
    .{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} (= Recycle Bin)

    .{D20EA4E1-3957-11D2-A40B-0C5020524153} (= Administrative Tools)
    .{00020D75-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (= Inbox)

    .{00021400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (= Another Folder)

    Important: include the point and nothing before that!

    Example: "rename X .{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"

    You can make a shortcut to that folder, change the target and icon and you have a nameless shortcut.

    The "My Computer","My Network Places" and "My Documents" folders will disappear when you place it on your desktop. (it's still there but you can't see it)

    The ALT+255 trick

    Yeah...used to be more useful in Win 98... if u used Alt 255 and named a directory (do this frm DOS and it works gr8).....u cud lock it up. Folder size 0 bytes...files 0..... double click and it wont open in Win 98..... store gigs of ****o and blank name it up to seal it forever.... can be renamed back properly thru DOS and u can get back ur data...

    But it doesnt work in XP etc.... Alt 255 is recognised as the normal space i think.... Btw, Alt+255 is not the same as SPACE as someone pointed out....
