Minesweeper secret

I started playing Minesweeper after watching my bud Shiva play it..Thought it'd be interesting and it certainly hooked me up(Small things like these make you realise you don't need a nVidia 8800 monster to keep you entertained).I google practically everthing I like and that includes my new found desires.Since Minesweeper was the newest on that list,I googled it and found an interesting tweak.

How to reveal Mines in the game:
1. First Minimize or close all running applications.
2. Start the Minesweeper game from the start menu.
3. Type ‘xyzzy’ and hold down the shift key for one second.
4. Now move the cursor over a Minesweeper square you will notice a tiny white pixel in the top left corner of your desktop screen. This pixel will change to black when your mouse moves over a mine. Cool huh?

Oh..and make sure you dont have a white or black color desktop!
