All you Minesweeper ”legit” players look away ! The Windows based Minesweeper game has a cheat. Hard to beleive, I always thought that Windows games had no cheats. All you have to do is -> open the game – place the cursor on the game panel and -> type: xyzzy and press SHIFT -> ENTER -> ENTER. After that you should see a ONE white pixel on the top left side of your screen. Everytime you will move the cursor over a mine in the game, the pixel will turn black. Try not to have a white background if you want to see the white pixel.
