    Hey, I was just wondering if there's a way to remove all endings of my files.

    I don't want no .doc/.avi/.xls/.jpg etc. after my files, and I'm not manually gonna remove them all...

    Finder > Preferences > Advanced > Show all file extensions

    Otherwise you're stuck with the extensions that are applied to a file's name.

    Can you select multiple items -> get Info -> Click hide extension?

    It's a check box. If it's ON it might be a source of file extensions.

    Now the Get Info thing....that's not fun. More then likely there's a Terminal command that you can run recursively
