Windows 7: what did I do?

windows 7
 
 
what did I do?

In my document folder, just recently all my files now show the extensions.
ie rules.doc
ie friends.pdf
etc, etc

What did I do? And how do I get it back to showing the files minus their extensions?
Thanks in advance

Hello Skostro,

Uncheck the Hide extensions for known file types box in Folder Options should take care of that for you.

File Extensions - Hide or Show

Hope this helps,
