time to minimize the game to the bar below (and any other program). Then, maximize the

This cheat was submitted by Ian Oakey.
To change the high score in minesweeper you have to open the file "winmine.ini".
Once you have opened it change the name and time given at the bottom of the file.
The next time you open minesweeper your name with the best time will be displayed.
With your cursor inside the minesweeper window type "XYZZY" then press Shift-Enter
and Enter. A white dot should appear in the upper-left corner of the screen. If it
turns black, your cursor is resting on a mine. This trick works best if your Windows
background is black.

While playing, hold down the left and right mouse buttons and you should see a 3x3
square imprint on the board. Next hit the ESC key while holding down both mouse
buttons, and the timer is stopped!
