Microsoft Office Hidden Games - Easter Eggs
Find out how to access all the secret games in MS Office products that Microsoft doesn't want you to see!!! [Actually, they may want you to see them, otherwise why would they make these so detailed?] All the known tricks are here and available for your viewing pleasure.

I think Microsoft is eihter getting lazy or getting yelled at about these secrets and less time is being put into the secrets and more into the actual applictation. This is probably a good thing, but it discourages us who want to know what the programmers really do in their spare time.

Microsoft Excel 95 hidden game

I got this trick for Excel 95 in an E-mail. I am not sure if it works becuase I don't have Excel 95. For those of you who do have it, here is the trick...

For excel 95 (not excel 97) try this out:
1 - Open a new file
2 - Scroll down to row 95
3 - Click on the row 95 button to highlight the entire row
4 - Press tab to move to the second column
5 - Now, move your mouse and click on help at the top
6 - Then click on "about Microsoft excel"
7 - Press ctrl-alt-shift and click on the tech support button at the same time.

A window will appear with the title: THE HALL OF TORTURED SOULS. This is really eerie. It has a doom style format and you can walk all around the hall using the arrow keys. On the sides of the walls are the names of the tortured souls....now walk up the stairs and then come back down, facing the blank wall. Now type in EXCELKFA --this will open the blank wall to reveal another secret passage, walk through the passage and do not fall off. This is difficult to do. When you get to the end you will see something really, really weird.
