Wish I could remember that #1: How to change file extensions in Windows
I often need to change a file extension, e.g., from a txt file to a csv (in order to be able to upload into Moodle, usually). Here’s how to do it:
- Go to the folder where the file is and in the folder controls go to
organize > Folder and Search Options.
- Click the View tab.
- Uncheck the box titled “Hide extensions for known file types”.
And that’s it – the extensions are revealed and you can change one (with caution of course).
