    I can't see extensions at the ends of filenames.

    I can't see the extension, such as .docx or .exe, at the ends of the filenames. What do I need to turn on for a global change?

    Bob,

    Go to Tools|Folder Options|View, and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types."

    Thanks for the help. I did this a long time ago in XP, and promptly forgot all about it. This Windows 7 has some serious changes. oo
