It sounds as if you might be altering the file type extension.

A file name is made up of 2 parts - The actual name (the bit before the . ) and the file type extension (the 3 or 4 letters after the . )

By default, the file type extensions are normally hidden (as this prevents problems), but it is possible to get XP to show them by the following method:

Open 'My Documents' folder. Click Tools>Folder Options>View. Scroll down the lsit and uncheck 'hide extensions for known file types' Click Ok.

If you have got the file extensions showing and you were to change or delete one the icon will change. The file type extension basically tells the computer what type of file it is, and which program should open it (and shows the appropriate programs icon.)

Ensure your files have the correct extension and the reverse the above steps to 'hide' them.

Hope this helps.

Go to control panel then go to folder option then click on view tab. On the list you'll find a option named "Hide extensions for known file type". Enable this option and click OK. Now you can rename your files easily.

Photoshop automate-batch rename


I think Photoshop renamed all pictures using the wrong extension. If you can open images with Windows Fax Viewer, they should work in Photoshop too. Check the extension of the photos, they should be JPEG with a .jpg extension. If not, try to rename them using the .jpg at end of the file name. I would be very surprised if Photoshop cannot recognize photos that Windows can. Tell me if this works because ther is another way but I need to know what extension it is currently.

  6. Open the ShellFolder folder
  7. Change the "Attributes" data value from "40 01 00 20" to "50 01 00 20". Once completed change the "CallForAttributes" dword value to "0x00000000" (double-click and change value data to 0). You must change both of these values to get the rename to appear.
After performing the above steps you will be able to rename the icon like any other icon. Right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop and click Rename and rename it to whatever you wish.

WINDOWS OFFICE FILE RENAME PROB.


When you rename a word file you need to keep the .doc file extension for it to open again in word. .xls for excel etc.

You may not have the file options visible in windows explorer. Go to tools > folder options > view and untick "hide file extensions for known file types.

If you mess it up you can open via windows explorer. Right click the file and choose openwith and select the appropriate program.
