    little Challenge(winxp)

    Challenge
    On windows XP try creating a folder that appears to have no name!
    See the attachment for more info.
    Note: this has nothing to do with the alt+255 thing

    Take a screenshot, Open MSPaint and Edit out the name =]

    OR

    alt+0160

    Alt+0160 works but only for folders as far as I know.
    With all the subtlety of an artillery barrage / Follow blindly, for the true path is sketchy at best. .:Bring OS X to x86!:.

    this dose not have anything to do with alt+*** or taking a screenshot, it must be possible to copy,paste,delete,... the folder

    LOL, old programming trick. You have to use command to do it. And basically use a programming trick to get a space to be used as a file name. Here's how it works

    Open your command prompt and type the following

    mkdir \" \"

    Note there is a space inbetween the sets of the symbols \"

    whereever you type that, there iwll be a folder that is make that has no file name. And to delete it you have to do the same thing, just use the rd command instead of mkdir. The \ symbol escapes the meaning of the quote, which allows this to happen.

    Sorry I can't explain it that well, it was a trick I leanred a long time ago. Good brain teaser for a school admin that knows nothing about comptuers though < April Fools trick LONG time ago > Because you can't delete the folder in windows or command prompt unless you use the \

    to go a step farther you can make a hidden directory (with no name) by using non ASCII characters. Just look in the back of your Windows manual and it should have a listing of differant combinations that make up symbols and what not. Just use those.

    I know that it worked in Win98, not sure about WinXP
