Want to view all the file extensions of all your files? Doesn't it make sense to display compressed files and folders in different colours? Windows 2000 can do all these things - but only if you tell it to. Open Folder Options either from Control Panel or the Tools menu of any Explorer window. Click the View tab, and scroll down the list, clicking to add or remove item check marks where necessary. Click OK to make the changes to the current folder, or click the Like Current Folder button to apply your settings to all of your folders. (This option is greyed out if you open Folder Options from Control Panel - by default, changes made there affect all folders.) To revert to the default view settings later, reopen Folder Options and click the Restore Defaults button.
