My files suddenly have changed names from

(Example)
Beach 005
to
Beach 005.jpg

So now when I rename any of my files, they turn out having no extension, and have to add the extension manually.

I want it to go back to it saying Beach 005 rather than Beach 005.jpg.

Little confusing here. There must be an extension associated with a file so it will be known what program to use to open it when clicked on. You can set Options to hide file extensions for know file types if that's what you are wanting.

Click Start, then go to Control Panel and select Folder Options. Select View tab. Scroll down to where it says hide extensions for known file types. Check box if wanted. If already checked, try unchecking/checking again. OK out.
