Would you believe "cheat codes" for Minesweeper?


Recommended Posts

Well here is the cheat:

You can configure Minesweeper to display either a white or black pixel on screen, depending on if the cursor is over a mine (black) or not (white) by following these steps:

1. Start Minesweeper.

2. Type


then press Shift+Enter.

3. Minimize all windows and begin play.

The pixel in the top left-hand corner of the desktop will be black if the cursor is over a mine square or white if the cursor is over a safe square. This trick works on all versions of Minesweeper supplied with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 3.1.

I first heard of this cheat on the orginal "TechTV, Screensavers - Call for Help". (When Leo was still there, thoses where the days)

I got it to work - you have to have really good eyes, and make sure you have the screen on the "Screen": not going off the screen edegs. If you have a big mon - 19" or higher, try changing your Screen Res to 800X600 temp. :w00t:
