It's been a long time since I do my last post. As you observed, my recent post was all about SEO tips. Now, I will now post some internet tips, tricks and tutorial.

This time, I want to teach on how to rename the file extension of your files. It's very easy but I took it in a minutes to get the correct procedure. And now, I just want to share what I learned.

Recently, I bought a Nokia C3. And it has two games on the phone, I need to find a game that compatible to the phone. So, I searched a lot of games that compatible to Nokia C3. So, I downloaded it all but I was quite surprise that I can't play and I found out the file was on .zip file. So, I searched which of the file extension suit to for games. So, I found it that it must me a .jar file extension.

But I don't know to change the file extension, so I google it again and finally found the best answer at forum. Thanks to mobile9 Forum.

Here's the best answer and really work for me.

1 - open any folder
2 - click on tools > folder options
3 - select the "view" tab
4 - make sure that "hide extensions for known file types" is de-selected.

2. Select Control Panel
3. Click Appearance and Personalization
4. Click Folder Options
5. Under View tab, deselect the"hide extensions for known file types"
6.Click Apply
