Notepad tricks collection

Today i had fun showing some old tricks in note pad. Check this and think what happened?

At first open notepad in your windows.

Then type this: this app can break

Save this and close the notepad. then open that saved txt file and your text is Gone..

If you type AAAA BBB CCC DDDDD or any other 4-3-3-5 letter combination like 4444 333 333 55555 does the same thing.

Show this to you friend and have fun. By the way notepad does this because it daves file in ANSI Encoding But open your file in Unicode Encoding.
