    .file is NOT a file extension.

    If you see that, it means the files do not have correct file extension. That is why you see a "white" file icon.
    Seems to me that you made a mistake when you selected the Save As Type when you saved those files.

    Shift + right click in an empty spot in the folder (Windows explorer) click on Open command window here.

    Then copy and paste this in the command prompt and hit enter it will change all the extensions.
    ren *.file *.jpg
