Stupid question about renaming files in Win 7...need help

Guys:

Say I have a need to rename a file and its related type in Windows 7 from something like test.NC to test.CNC. How do I make this happen where I can rename the file extension like you used to be able to do in MS-DOS? If I right click my file, hit rename, and enter test.CNC I end up with a file called test.CNC.NC which obviously is not what I want.

I need to change the extension.

Thanks!

Go to control panel, open folder option, and the view tab. Make sure the checkmark is removed from the hide extensions for known file types.

I believe that should do it for you.

Yes, I can rename my files like you did, but I always set my view options to allow me to view file extensions as soon as I get a new Windows box.

One of the first things I change on a new computer. Then I also show hidden files. Thankfully I no longer have to kill the paperclip.
