To enable file extension showing in WinXP: 1. Go to Folder Options. You can do this in two ways. You can either access it through the Control Panel, or through Windows Explorer. a. To access it from the Control Panel, if using Classic view, go to the Start Menu by hitting either the WINDOWS key or CTRL+ESC, then select Settings, and finally Control Panel. If not using Classic View, select the Control Panel directly from the Start Menu. Once in Control Panel, if using Classic View, you'll land in a list view of options, from which you want to select the Folder Options item by pressing F until you hear it, then press ENTER to open it. If using Category View, click on the link called Performance and Maintenance, then click on the File Types button, and you'll get in to Folder Options. b. To access it from Windows Explorer, press WindowsKey+E to quickly open Windows Explorer. Press ALT+T, O to quickly get to Folder Options. 2. Once in Folder Options, you land on the General tab of this multi-page dialog box. Press CTRL+TAB once to reach the View tab. 3. You'll land on the Reset All Files and Folders button. TAB once to a tree view of options. 4. Once in this tree view, press H twice to reach the "Hide Extensions for Known File Types" option. 5. By default, it's set to Off. Hit SPACE to turn it On. 6. OK out of the dialog (i.e., TAB to and activate the OK button with the SPACEBAR) to save the change and exit Folder Options, then close Control Panel or Windows Explorer with ALT+F4. 7. Now, when browsing through files, you'll see their extensions (i.e., you'd see the file you were discussing on this thread as "Black_and_White_F1.rtf" rather than just "Black_and_White_F1". If you have multiple copies of the file on your computer with different extensions, you'll now be able to tell the difference between them (i.e., one will have, say, a ZIP extension, one an RTF, and so on).

Roger's trying to upload the zip file and because he hasn't got the file extensions enabled, he can't tell the difference. That's why he keeps trying to upload a file called Black_and_White-f1. I'd like to shoot Bill Gates, but that wouldn't help! Roger, if I don't see anything else in the following thread to indicate who's helping and what's happened, I'll help you today. Just write me privately at akp@xxxxxxxxxxxx, and I'll give you my hone number. Ann P. -- Ann K.
