    how do i remove the extension off of each file name on my computer?

    for example if i have a picture file it will have the .jpg next to the name and when i go to change the name i also have to add the .jpg back to it again or else it will change the file type.

    how do i remove this?

    Folder Options> View tab> check the box: Hide extensions for known file types
    then Apply and OK.
