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.
