It is not just CON, there are many such windows only reserved words which you cannot use to create a folder or file. One such word i think is NULL. Since I am not using windows now I am not able to test this word. If it is not correct I am sorry but I am sure there are a lot of such words.

Hi friend thanks for this new information.I tried what you said and you were right I could not rename the folder to con.As correctly said by one friend it is a system, windows reserved keyword so we cannot use it directly.Do you know some more words like con.Please share with us here.

CON is a reserved word in windows operated systems . A reserved word cannot be used easily as a folder's name . CON stands for console ( for e.g. key board) . And a list of such key words can be seen in IO.SYS file in windows operated systems .
