To reveal Mines place cursor in Minesweepers
window and press "xyzzy" then press Shift+Enter.
Then move your cursor around the silver tabs and
a white dot should appear on the top right of
your background. If the white dot turns black,
that tab is a mine.
Note: This trick works best if your background
is black. Trick will not work on Windows 95, 98 or NT if the Windows Explorer is visible.
This trick does not work for Vista or Windows 7.
