Re: turning on file extensions

I have XP Pro and use JFW, but I don't think that makes a difference 
with these instructions.

1. Open up "My Documents" or any other folder.
2. Go to the menu bar and select Tools -> "Folder Options ..."
3. Tab over to the View tab. you can use control-tab.
4. Hit tab 3 times until you get into a list of options.
5. Arrow down until you hear "Hide extensions for known file types."
6. Press the space bar to turn this option from on to off.
7. Tab over to the Apply button and press the space bar.
8. You should now be placed on the "Apply to all folders" button. Press 
the space bar to apply the changes to all the folders on your system.
9. Press the space bar on the Yes button to accept these changes.

Now the next time you open a folder, you should see the file extensions.

Re: turning on file extensions

Excellent instructions.  I was just about to send the exact
steps, so, Doris should have no trouble.  It doesn't matter
what screen reader you are using.

Hi all,

I've been approached by a web developer who wishes to build a whole new
music web system, and wants to make sure from the get go that it is done
properly and is useful to all.  (Nice for a change.)  AS I am not a web
developer myself, I don't know where to direct him to find out the preferred
standards for universal design of web sites, but I trust someone else on the
list knows?  Thanks for any help you can provide.
