Or you could be really naughty and cheat .... ]:)

Copied and Pasted from a post by Babe Ruth a while ago:
Want to always always win at Minesweeper?

You can configure Minesweeper to display either a white or black pixel on screen, depending on if the cursor is over a mine (black) or not (white) by following these steps:

1. Start Minesweeper.
2. Type xyzzy then press Shift+Enter.
3. Minimize all windows and begin play.

The pixel in the top left-hand corner of the desktop will be black if the cursor is over a mine square or white if the cursor is over a safe square. This works on all versions of Minesweeper supplied with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT4.0, and Windows 3.1.

... not that I have ever done this .... :D

Doesn't seem to work - also a bit ambiguous as to where to type

It works
Type anywhere
You do need a monitor capable of showing just a single pixel at the edge of the screen. On many CRTs it could be under the mask I suspect.
Shows up crisp and clear on my LCD's
