Windows CE Easter Egg - The Perfect Hand in Solitaire

It’s frustrating trying to get a good hand in solitaire. With a little trick, you can make things much easier.

Using the software keyboard, tap Control, tap Shift, then tap the Deal button at the top, and you'll get a perfect hand of solitaire. Cards will be grouped with those of the same value, such as all threes together. Within a few minutes you should have the sorting done and the game finished!

Side Note: This is also a good way to judge the performance of your device -- look at how quickly it draws the cards to get an idea of how your device handles high-speed graphics.

Wow! On HP iPAQ-4700 with a customized ROM - "Windows Mobile 6.1 kozura edition rev.3" - works like a charm. Of course the sequence is a little bit different - tap then then and from this menu - - the perfect deck is there!

This works on a HP 620LX if you hold DOWN the Control & Shift (one of the caps lock buttons) buttons together. Neat. Now I can beat my wife (legally!) No, no... at the game silly...
