    I have many diffrent movie and audio files on my computer. How do I find the extention (ex: .avi, .mpeg)

    Is there a download or something I need, or is there some simple wat to do this?

    open windows explorer, at the top go to tools > folder options, click the 'view' tab, and about halfway down or so you should see a tick box for 'hide file extensions for known files'. Untick this, and they should pop up. Also change the view to details, as opposed to icons or thumbnails or whathaveyou.

    right click on the start button, go to explore, then at the top go to tools > folder options, click the 'view' tab, and about halfway down or so you should see a tick box for 'hide file extensions for known files'. Untick this, and they should pop up. Again, tho, only works in details view.
