How to enable file name extension in Windows 7

Many a time, I wanted to rename a file in Windows 7, only to finding myself having filenames such as happy.tif.jpg just because the file extension of happy.tif , that is tif cannot be seen. In the processing of renaming the jpg extension is appended at its end.

I have learnt of how to enable file extension in Windows 7 and would like to share it with readers. Here it goes:

1 Click the Start button, then click Control Panel.

2 When Appearance and Personalization is seen, click the Folder option

3 Then Click View and under Advanced Settings, clear the Hide file extension by clicking the tick sign to clear it.

4 Click OK.

Happy computing.
