Unable to show EXE file extension

By thong_cheekang ·
Dear all,

My laptop is installed with win xp and I have a strange problem: I wanted to rename an executable (.EXE) file into another file extension, but I can't get it done!

I understand the usual thing to do is to first go to Windows Explorer, click on menu entry "Folder Option". Then, under "View", we are to unclick "Hide extension for known filetypes", so as to reveal the extension for renaming.

However, for my case, some other types of file extensions appeared but not .EXE!

I understand the next step is to go to the tab "File types" and try to modify the file type behaviour from there. However, the file type ".EXE" is not even there for modification!

Does anyone has any idea why my laptop is behaving like this and any solution?

Thanks and Best Regards
