Windows 7: fonts don't show file extensions

windows 7
fonts don't show file extensions

I've configured windows to NOT "hide file extensions" and it works in most folders...however when I go to the Windows/Fonts folder I can't get the extensions to show up. I can right click the font to find properties which shows the extension but I can't keep doing that for every one. Tried everything. Please help.

Because it is not showing you the file names. It is showing the font name.

Browse to the font folder located at C:\Windows\Fonts. Allow to populate. Change the view to Details. Right-click on any of the column headers and click to check the option Font file names. The names will now appear, together with their extensions as shown below.

Unfortunately, this does not give the name for all of the fonts, and I've found no way around this using the standard interface.

However, if you download and install Tree Size Free JAM Software - Windows Freeware and allow it to scan the font folder C:\Windows\Fonts it will give a list of the names and types.
