How Unhiding of File Extensions in Windows Useful
Check your computer desktop. I know it is filled with lots of files. If not just open a word document and save it to the desktop. Check the file name. If you have not named the file it will show either as Document1.doc or just Document1. In the former, the file name is with file extension and the latter with hidden file extension.
Hidden file extensions may cause harm to your computer rarely. Evil people can cheat you with a file name Document1.doc where [dot]doc is merely the part of file name not an extension. The extension is hidden and may be [dot]exe file that may harm your computer.
