    Snapshot below will explain what I want. Is there a way in windows explorer that when I try to rename a file, file extension is not selected and only the file name is selected. It will save me from typing file extension as well, too lazy!:)

    Thanks

    That is a nice feature, the only filemanager I´ve seen having it is freecommander.

    Hi

    There must be a way (I don't know how) as that's how it is done in Windows Vista

    Hi

    If you tick the box for Hide extensions for known file types in
    Control Panel/Folder Options/ View
    Your files will only show the name and not the extension, so when you edit it only the file name will be changed.

    I know that but I want to do it while seeing file extension at the same time.
