Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assuming Microsoft Widows here, there are two ways to hide file extensions.

1. In the Windows Explorer Folder Options find the “Hide extensions for known file types” and un-check it.
2. In the registry, within HKCR a key can be set that will always hide the extension of a file type. In this key a value can be set to hide the file extension called “NeverShowExt” for the file type.
example: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile

So, if someone wants to always hide a file extension they can create a file type entry in HKCR and set the “NeverShowExt” value to hide it. You can remove the “NeverShowExt” value to have the extension seen.

    What's the operating system ? What antivirus software did you use ? Are you sure the 'hide extensions for known file types' is not selected in the folder's view options ?
