# Windows 7: Bug in Calculator for all OS versions

 24 Jan 2009 #1 harmohans Windows 7 5 posts Bug in Calculator for all OS versions There is a bug in all the versions of Windows XP, Vista and Win 7. On doing the operation - 2704 / 52, we get the result as 1. This is a funny bug and means there can be other combinations on which the arithmatic operations may not result correctly. My System Specs

 24 Jan 2009 #3 garysgold Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64 3,194 posts Maine, USA As mansrm81 states. Since 2704 is the square of 52, you have to hit enter twice (which will repeat the operation) to get 1. Works as it always has here. Gary My System Specs

It gives me 52 when I hit enter once. See the zipped Problem Steps Recorder file below.

Type a large number and divide by 10 and repeat the = a few times and it will divide by 10 each time. Also works like that on any calculation. Take a number and add 10 and repeat the = and it will add 10 each time. Jim My System Specs

On my PC, If I increase the Display dpi to 125% (and probably 150% too) the numerals don't display in the viewer properly. My System Specs
