Windows XP is not known for it's lack of glitches, and Command Prompt is no exception. Here is a rather strange, glitchy, and pretty much pointless trick I found out when I tried to type the alphabet on Command Prompt while holding down the Ctrl key (don't ask me why). Open a command window (and I'm not sure if this only works on XP or not), hold down Ctrl, type d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l, and m (in that order, and don't be spooked if some of the letters start disappearing) then it will say a message that has nothing to do with what you typed. Some sort of code, obviously not something you can type on the keyboard. Yep, that's all.

Hi AnonymousComputer,

Playing random keystrokes with your computer even in a methodical way and recommending this to other people could lead them to damage their computers. For information about the cmd prompt feature, you might look at Introduction to the Windows Command Prompt
