Type a page name and press Enter. You'll jump to the page if it exists, or you can create it if it doesn't.

Tips & Tricks:
You can use the IntPtr from Createfile with FileStream. This is usefull for opening devices such as Com1:, Lpt1: and Prn.
IntPtr ptr = CreateFile(filename,access, share,0, mode,0, IntPtr.Zero);
Alternative Managed API:
System.IO.File and System.IO.FileInfo
An IntPtr is a pointer to a memory location (unmanaged) that adapts to the platform it is running on (64-bit, etc.) UNLIKE a standard int/Integer. You should always use this type for unmanaged calls that require it, even though an int will appear to work on your development machine.
