If you go to Start > Run and type in C:\con\con Windows will go to the blue screen, but if you hit Enter to continue, it goes back to the desktop!
Also works if you input C:\aux\aux
This is happening maybe because DOS used these commands, and Windows 9x is dos-based.
Funny, maybe try it in a VM or your old computer you have lodged up in the attic?
Anyway cool! Cool

What is the first thing a computer says?

Hello World!

Small plug for my site, but if you want to try this go to, sign up, then go to the virtual machine page and choose Windows 95 / 98. This will run a disposable session of them in your browser so if you mess up you can just close the window.

Will have to check if this happens in ReactOS - wouldn't think so as it's NT-based but it might work. Will also check 3.1
