I always want file extension to show. I tell Explorer to apply to all folders, close - reopen, sometimes it works, sometimes extensions disappear.
Recently I started to notice, that this happens after I use TFC or delete temp files myself.
Is there a way to permanently keep extensions, in the registry maybe? I can't figure out what gremlin is changing settings.
And is there a way to tell Explorer to always show pictures as thumbnails instead of filenames?

Open My Computer choose Tools/Folder Options then choose the tab View go and uncheck Hide extensions for known file types apply and now the file extensions will always show.

The default My Pictures folder should always show as thumbnails, if you have pictures in other folders then you have to right click on that folder and choose Properties/Customize so to tell explorer to open this folder with the option you desire (as pictures, video, music, documents ect)

merci beaucoup
I will set it up that way. The problem is, something always changes settings. Did run a lot of Malware scanning and nothing is found. I didn't go into My Computer, I did it through looking in Explorer in a folder.
