To use this trick just follow these simple steps :
- To show mines put your cursor inside the minesweeper window and type XYZZY, then hit Shift+Enter, then Enter again.
- This will place a dot in the top left corner of the screen.
- To see where mines are put your cursor over a square. If the dot is white that square is safe and if the dot is black that square is a mine.
So it is a simple trick to cheat minesweeper in windows and to rule at this game.
