Case of the vanishing folder easter egg Windows 7 RTM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is this a Easter egg or what?

    Steps to recreate
    1. Create a folder, any folder
    2. rename the folder, by adding a dot "." at the end of the folder
    3. you will notice the folder is missing
    4. hit refresh and the folder will appear again
    5. note the dot "." does not get added, and by the rulz of file naming it shouldn't

  • I just tried this. Created a test. folder in the root of my C: drive. It appeared as test and stayed there. Properties showed it as test and I was able to delete it with no problem.

    This is on Win 7 Ultimate RC1 build 7100

    Never mind, I misread your post. I got the same results you did, sorry.
