Tools-->Folder Options-->View

uncheck "hide extensions for known file types.

To view file extensions:

Open windows explorer (file manager). From the menu select tools – folder options – view. Uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types”. Click “Apply to all folders”.
Select “OK”.

This is one of the most annoying Windows XP default settings, in my opinion. Each time I installed a system or go to a new system, the first thing is to go to Folder Options and uncheck hide file extension.
