Folders with names in capital letters

  • A (small) novelty in Windows 98 is that you can use capital letters in folder names. Notice the second to last folder in the picture below:

    Windows 95 did not allow that, but now it is acceptable.

    Personally I should prefer, that only smallcaps were allowed both in files and folders names. It would make things a lot easier.

    You should also remember that on many web-servers (Unix/Linux-based) there is a difference between lower cases and capitals. The file Index.htm and the file index.htm are not the same. Therefore it is good only to use lower cases, both in file and folder naming. If you mix the cases it can be difficult to remember whichyou have used.
