    Winows XP not changing to .exe extension on a friend's program I downloaded

    I have completely forgotten how to do it. A good friend of mine has written a mathematical program and sent it to me with a different extension than the .exe. I am to change the extension back to .exe so I can then use the program. I have downloaded it, then put it in the desired folder I want to keep it in. Then right clicked on the program and then clicked rename... however I can only change what is in front of the extension and not the extension itself........what have I forgotten? I did the same thing on my other computer with Win 7 and it worked perfectly, but not with the XP computer. In the past I haven't had this problem on the XP computer until now....but can't remember if I did something different. Any help is appreciated. thanks John
