File Extension names in Windows !! Explorer

Go to solution Solved by Tactilis,

Recommended Posts

I use paint.net as my main graphics tool, so I have my association to open any graphic file set to paint.net, solely for this reason. However in Windows 11 Explorer I need to see the file type extension displayed as, .jpg, .png, .tiff, .bmp, etc.,  - NOT as the generic "paint.net Image". Because I use a large number of different photo types, and I need to sort by file extension type in Windows Explorer. 


Is there a way to change a setting so Windows will display the correct file extension, instead of the generic "paint.net Image" even though I use paint.net? Thanks
