Ok, i always used to just be able to createa text document and name it right there with out opening it, like right clicking on it and hitting rename and i could name it anything i want. Now when i do that, whatever i type there, that is the file extension so it wont run, or if i save the text file and i wanna save it as like something.bat or whatever, i have to hit Save as: All files and then on my desktop if i have a text document, it shows the .txt extension in the NAME. someone PLZ HELP ME! :mad:

Did you recently change any FolderOption view properties like "Hide Extensions for Known File Types" to "Yes" ? If so, change it back to "No" and then try it.

Start>Settings>ControlPanel>FolderOptions>View ... Uncheck "Hide Extensions For Known File Types" and click on Apply. Now try creating one and renaming it.

Let us know what happens.
