Hiding File Extensions

trish, Jun 28, 11:32pm
Son has Win7 on laptop and has changed something and now all his files are showing their extensions, and he can't rename them without including the ext. Any suggestions?

Control panel - folder options ( or similar ) - View - Tick "Hide extensions for know file types.

That's great. Having extensions showing is the best option by far.

'Right Click' on the file, then select 'Properties', should show the file name?
