Need to see file extensions

I am running windows 7 and need to see file extensions, I go to folder options, 'view' tab, but there is no advanced settings button, only a restore defaults button.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Om, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The setting should be in the "View" tab under "Files and Folders" in Folder Options.

File Extensions - Hide or Show



Hope this helps,
Shawn

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?
