Edit by Brothersoft: This article will present a Windows shell extension designed to change file extensions in a flexible and easy way. Using this extension the user can manage FileNames and extensions in a separate manner.

By Default, Explorer hides file extensions from the user, which is OK until there comes a need to change a file's extension. In Windows OS, a File Extension determines the file type and the application which opens the selected file, but sometimes we find a file with an extensions that does not match the actual file content. One of the most common examples are text files made in UNIX-like operating systems. UNIX-like systems usually use Line feed character (0xAh) as a new line delimiter, as opposed to Windows's Carriage Return+Line feed character pair (0xDh 0xAh). Viewed in Windows's Notepad, UNIX-made *.txt files usually appear as a blob of text without proper line endings. For huge files, this makes text difficult to read, and makes it almost impossible to correct all line endings by hand. A Quick Fix is to open it in Wordpad, or to rename file extension from *.txt to *.rtf. Personally, I use the second option. Another example is well-known to Manga fans: the famous *.cbz files which are simply zipped images with an archive's extension changed from *.zip to *.cbz. The bottom line is, it is not convenient to change extensions for many files by hand.

The idea for this code also originated from the way filenames are handled in Windows XP. In Windows XP, when a file is selected for renaming, assuming that extensions are not hidden, both filename and extension parts are selected, and a user must Highlight only the extension part to change it. And, it only works for a single file. In Vista, when both parts are visible, by default the name part is highlighted.
