This brief tutorial will show you how to display file extensions (and a number of other file and folder options) in Windows Vista.
If you’re new to Vista but a pro with XP or Windows 2000, even you might be a bit stumped as to where the file and folder options went. Here’s how to enable viewing file extensions –
- Open up Windows Explorer by selecting Documents, Music, Pictures or any folder…
- Select Organize and then Folder and Search Options from the drop-down list.
- Select the View tab and then remove the check from the box labeled Hide extensions for known file types
- And now file extensions will be displayed.
