I've obviously done something, because my computer is not showing .doc after Word documents and .pdf after Adobe documents. I know these are the proper "endings" but they have not been appearing in the past. My assistant's computer doesn't show them, and mine has only started showing them recently. I wouldn't mind so much, but when I need to rename a document, I have to remember to put the .doc or .pdf and it just takes more time. Also, it takes up more room in the document title. Can someone tell me how to keep the .doc and .pdf from showing in the name of my documents? Thanks in advance for your help!
