    OK I'm in "my Documents " ,I right click and pick "new"and from the list pick sat "Word or note pad"and I've got myself a text file to paste something I want to keep a note of in .
    Now I go right click on it and pick "rename" then put a discription of the pasted contents,but it insists that I include typing .doc or .txt on the end of the description .Now I don't remember having to do this ever before ,have I got something set funny is it just the way it is by doing this?

    You've made windows show file extensions (as default they're normally hidden.)

    Open up My Computer or any folder.
    Click Tools > Folder Options...
    Then Click over to the 'View' tab.
    The very last shown option should be "Hide extensions for known file types" make sure this is ticked.
