Steve Posted September 13, 2010 Report Share Posted September 13, 2010 How-to Configure Windows XP to Show File Extensions Step 1 - Right Click XP Start Menu and Click Explorer Step 2 - Click Tools, Folder Options Step 3 - Click the View Tab then scroll down and Un-Check the box Hide extensions for known file types Step 4 - Click OK That's it! You should not see the file extension for all file types while navigating in Windows Explorer. I just realized I created a groovyPost tutorial for How-to Configure Windows 7 to show File Extensions however I never did the same for Windows XP. Being that a user needs this info the quickest thing to do is just create a forum post on the subject rather than the detailed groovyPost step-by-step.
