Cannot Rename A New Folder Due to Restrictions Of Names

It is not possible to rename a new folder con, lpt1, lpt2, nul, com1, com2, com3, com4, clcok$, prn and may be many more. These were basically use in old DOS versions so cant be created.


You can make the folder named anything you like by following this example (we have decided to use the name con). Create a new folder, rename it "con" but don't press enter yet, hold down Alt and type 255 on the number pad and then press enter (for laptop users, press fn key and press the letter keys k-i-i to make use of the number pad) then press enter and the folder will be named "con". This same process can be used with any name for a folder.
