    I would like to see ALL file extensions for Windows 7 in Windows Explorer.

    I went to the Control Panel, Folder Options, there I unchecked "Don't show hidden files, folders, or drives" and checked "Show hidden files, folders, and dives". This does not allow ALL file extensions to be viewed. As an example: none of the Office documents have extensions, none of the .ini files, nor .exe, nor .pdf, nor .txt - these are the only ones I've checked. I do see .dll, but these seem to be pretty much the only files.

    Thank you,
    Joe

    Ken,

    You're so right. That did the trick, gave me what I was looking for.

    Thanks a lot.
