Windows Minesweeper Cheat.
Here's a neat little cheat to help you with Windows Minesweeper - it works in Windows XP, too. Start Minesweeper and then move the mouse cursor into the battlefield (without clicking on anything). Then type on the keyboard: xyzzy and then press the Shift Key then press the Enter Key twice. You should now see a tiny little white dot in the top left corner of your screen - you will have to look hard as it is only 1 pixel in size, so is minute. Now, whenever you move the mouse cursor over a mine, the pixel will turn to your screen colour (and effectively disappear). This woks, so try it! Minesweeper will never be the same. :-)
