    Exclamation {Vista Bug} Clipboard Buffer is being disturbed due to file name compulsion

    Hello readers, I have found an intresting Bug... just try it.

    The instructions and screenshots are given below

    1> copy any URL say " http://www.microsoft.com/ "

    2> create new notepad file. as shown in screenshot below





    3> name that folder to "[your URL].txt" <u will get prompt messege..>







    Your filename becomes " httpwww.microsoft.com.txt "

    4> open that file and just right click and paste.....

    You will see that the URL which you have copied earlier becomes
    " httpwww.microsoft.com " . you will find " :\\ " missing.

    Try this and pls give reply...

    After naming the file, open the notepad file and again paste.

    The normal behavior should be that the hyperlink should be in whole that http://www.microsoft.com but when you paste it in the notepad the clipboard contents now change to httpwww.microsoft...

    1. Paste hyperlink in file name field.
    2. paste content in the newly created file.
