here you are my friend..

1. Click the "Start" button, type folder options and click the "Folder Options" link that appears.

2. When the "Folder Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "View" tab.

3. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types".

4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.

file extensions
I changed folder options to view files extensions. I then tried to change the file extensions on a couple of files and every time I tried to change an extension to a different type (i.e. *.htlm to *.rar) the explorer window freezes and shows not responding. Has anyone else had this problem?
