A slightly annoying thing

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Im not sure how but for some reason all of my documents have .jpg or .doc or whatever depending on what it is after the name. Is there anyway I can get rid of this?

    Yeah..

    Open up a folder and go to:

    Tools>>Folder Options>>View. Below where it says "Hidden files and folders" look for something that says "hide extentions for known files types" and check it the little box next to it.

    however this is (IMO) a bad thing to do. That .tla is what tells windows what type of file it is.

    if you hide that information, what is going to stop you double clicking the dirtypicture.exe file and installing a trojan on your computer?

    If you do what I said to do Ren it will change everything so no file extentions will show on any of your files.

    I thought you could change the settings on a per folder option or global option.
