    Is it possible to hide file extensions on every file without having to do it manually?

    This might help:

    Finder>Preferences>Advanced. Uncheck "Show all file extensions"

    Finder > Preferences > Advanced...

    Uncheck "Show all file extensions"

    Individual apps (like Illustrator, etc.) may give you the option of adding the extension again for a particular file. This will override the Finder preference.
