Bizarre MS behavior

Bizarre behavior in MS Word 97

In Microsoft Word 97 (Service release 1 or higher)

  1. Type the word Blue
  2. Select it
  3. Use Format Font and change its color to Blue, then boldface it
  4. Deselect the word, then type a space after it
  5. With the cursor after the space, choose Help, About Microsoft Word
  6. Then click on the icon in the upper left corner of the help message

Even more bizarre in Excel!

  1. In Excel 97, open a new blank work sheet.
  2. Press F5 and type X97:L97 in the "Reference" box, then click OK
  3. Now hit your tab key once (you should end up in cell M97).
  4. press "Ctrl" and "Shift" while clicking once on the "Chart wizard"  icon  (the one at the top with the blue-yellow-red bar chart).
  5. Welcome aboard! After a few moments you should be flying. Steer with  the mouse, accelerate and decelerate with the left and right mouse buttons  respectively, and look for  the monoliths with the programmer credits.
