HowTo show the File Extensions for Known File Types

Well, what are we talking about...? The File extension is the part behind the dot in any file name. Windows regularly do not show the extensions of all kind of files your system know. Only unknown file extensions are shown... Any Program you install on your system could include a new type of file and so a new file extension. The File extensions show which program can use, open, edit, wrote or save the file....

Unreal Tournament use a lot of file extensions, they contain different informations and must be stored in different folders... But if Windows show you only the file name and the UT99 Icon you don't know where to put the file, that's why you need to know the file extensions!
