Comment: It is required to rename files in File Explorer (Score 1) 564

by short (#49172569) Attached to: Why We Should Stop Hiding File-Name Extensions
I was once told by a MS-Windows user that he would be fine (or even welcome) showing the extensions but he can't set it that way. As then when you click a filename in File Explorer for renaming and write the new name (sure without typing the dot-and-extension) the file loses its extension.
