How to create a name less folder in windows 7
as in xp we did ALT+255
Step 1 : First of all select any file or folder whom you want to assign no name.
Step 2 : Now right click on the file or folder and choose rename option.
Step 3 : Now the main part, press and hold the Alt key and while holding the Alt key, type numbers 0160 from the numpad. Here it is important to note that number 0160 should be typed from numpad and not from number keys present above character keys.
Step 4 : Press Enter and the nameless file or folder will be created. The file or folder that seems nameless is actually named with a single space.
i have a challenge for you,
try to make folder with the name:
Did you actaully try it in Windows 7?... Its the same, you can use any Char which is "nothing", you can find em in your char map

Hmmm, why would that be?
What's the function of the con string?
I'm on my lappy.. so dont i have any other option?? :/
Neat, it appears you can't make any of these dirs :
Potential drive letter - A: to Z:
but, from the same link in the comments people suggested these 2.
we can create the folder con by typing "alt+0160+ " after this type "con"
the folder will create like "con" the 0160 is hidden.
You learn something new every day ...
I'm also using a laptop...
so what, you have a numpad though, works with the key 'fn' isn't it????????
you can switch the numpad on and off holding "fn" key and pressing the "insert" key or the key written "Num Lk" in the same color as "fn" turn that on....now you "m" key should work as zero of the num pad, "j" as 1. "o" as 6 and so on...
now follow the steps to create a nameless folder...
dont forget to turn the numlock off after the work....
I have posted a picture with a folder named "con" haven't you seen......
Anymore similar tricks ?
I want to learn, too.
on windows xp you can get full ascii table with alt + DDD where DDD is number typed on numeric keyboard
in windows 7 this works but you must enter 4 digits: alt + DDDD
about system devices:
con represent console (keyboard)
com1 ~ com4 represent serial ports
lpt1 ~ lpt4 represents parallel printer port
prn is reserved for generic printer
nul presents empty handler
and so on ...
