Hi Guys:

I just joined, just an average computer geek, I love computers, but sometime I get stumped, I recently went to save a text file, and somehow when I went to save it converted the text file to MS-DOS Application (.COM), is there away to convert this back to text. I spent a lot of time copying information to this text file, and am sad to know that maybe I lost all the info., any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Doug :welcome:

Try to rename the file back to .txt by default windows doesn't show the file extension so you have to change settings by following the instructions on this article.
