    How to Add File Name Extensions Context Menu in Windows 10

    A file name extension is a set of characters added to the end of a file name that determine which app should open it. By default, File Explorer hides file name extensions in Windows 10. However, you can make file name extensions visible.

    This tutorial will show you how to add File name extensions to the context menu for all users to quickly toggle to hide or show file name extensions for their account in Windows 10.

    When you add the "File name extensions" context menu, it will be available when users right click on a file, folder, folder background, and desktop.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.


    EXAMPLE: "File name extensions" context menu
