Can you create folders with these names?

Can you create folders in your Windows environment with these names:
  • Aux
  • Con
  • Nul

Do you why? May be 'reserved words'?!!!

Of course reserved! as well as com1, com2, prn, etc.

We can create a folder with name Aux
Con
Nul


I have created a folder in D: with name con using dos- mkdir \\.\d:\con, but the folder is not accessible & cannot be deleted by delete/shift+delete key.
