Windows 3.1 Easter Egg - Minesweeper Cheat (NOT AN EGG)
1. Enter Minesweeper, and type "xyzzy"(No quotes).
2. Press the left shift key.
3. Look at the top-left most pixel on the entire screen. To see this pixel, you have to minimize or shrink Program manager, since this changing pixel resides on the background wallpaper. When the pointer in on a mine the pixel will turn
4. This cheat is known to work under Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups 3.11, but it is belived that the minesweeper under Windows 95 was changed and that this trick won't work.
