Windows Is Weird

I know we could list a thousand reasons why Windows is weird. But this particular reason is my favourite.

Here are the N steps to my favourite Windows 10 weirdness:

  1. Copy the URL to this blog post.

  2. Paste the URL in a Notepad window. You see the entire URL to this blog post. Good.

  3. Open File Explorer. Right-click on an empty area in the window. Click on New › Folder. Paste the URL as the name of the folder.


    File Explorer takes the URL and strips all invalid characters before using it as the folder name. Smart.

  4. Paste the URL in a Notepad window again.

What do you see?

Windows is weird.
