    Could any one provide a free utility or software to hide or show files extensions upon request making search on those file difficult to find ?

    Thank you much!

    XP has built in tool which may help

    Open 'C' or any Folder> View> in the drop down list:"Choose details"
    There are options galore.
    You may have to go folder by folder for some files

    Hi

    Not quite sure if this is what you want

    In Control Panel
    Open Folder Options
    select View and tick or untick the Hide extensions for known file types

    You should look at using Scramit. Beta version available free from www.scramit.com This desktop utility allows you to drag and drop any file to its window. The file is encrypted using your private password and stored using any name or file extension you nominate. When you want to retrieve the file just drag it back to the Scramit window. It will decypt back to its original name and can be opened from within the window or dropped back into a directory. The encrypted files can be sent to another scramit user and will automatically decrypt if you password is registered on their system.
    Hope this helps.
