Who has ever won to Minesweeper? If you're tired of losing all the time you can try this nice cheat that will basically reveals mines:

How This Tip Works

  1. Start Minesweeper,
  2. Type "xyzzy" without the quotes,
  3. Hit Shift and Enter at the same time,
  4. Minimize all application windows that hide the desktop. The uppermost pixel in the top left corner of your desktop will turn black when you mouse over a mine, and white when it's safe to click.

This tip also works with Windows 2000 & Windows NT 4.0.
