  • Can't as far as I know. CON is a device and Windows won't allow you to make a folder the smae name as a device.

  • Device names such as COM1, CON or LPT1 are reserved words, and they can't be used as folder or file names. You can check the following link:

  • Open command prompt.

    traverse to the location where you want to create the folder using cd command

    then type md con\ and hit enter

    then go to the location and refresh once, the folder with name con will be visible.
