Windows machines are configured so that they hide the “dot 3″ extension after a file name; in other words, the 3 (sometimes 4) letter extension that identifies the type of file does not appear. For instance, a Microsoft Word document might not have “.doc” on the end of the filename, or a text file might not have “.txt” after it, or a Web page might be missing the “.htm” or “.html”. If you want to view all file extensions in Windows XP you need to follow this Procedure.

Double Click on My Computer.

Click on Tools > Folder Options… in the menus.

Click on the View tab.Remove the check from Hide extensions for known file types.Click the OK button.
