Show File Extensions in Windows 7

I find it strange and somewhat annoying that Windows 7 hides file extensions by default.

To show file extensions in Windows 7:

  • Click the Windows Start button Windows Start Button and select Control Panel
  • Click Appearance and Customization and then Folder Options. You can also get Folder Options to appear by simply typing it into the search box in the upper-right corner
  • Select the View tab
  • Uncheck the box under Advanced settings that says Hide extensions for known file types and press OK
