    Why do I always have to write the extension to an file if I want to rename it.

    For example, I want to rename the Document.doc just to Document without the .doc but I can't. I get some unknown file.

    Is there an option where you can dissable the writing down of extensions for any program??

    Im on XP Pro v2002 SP1.

    Cheers

    No, no, on ME I do not need to write down an extension like .doc when renaming files.

    For example: This is a Winzip file called Whatever
    ME - Whatever <-- That&#39;s how I want it. Do NOT need to add .zip

    XP - Whatever.zip - cannot write just Whatever <-- must add .zip

    or Word Document Example
    ME - Word no extension needed

    XP - Word.doc All I want it to be is without the extension .doc or .zip etc.

    Does anybody get&#39;s what I&#39;m talikng about. Is this possible on XP??

    Cheers
