    Sorry, been posting questions a lot today...
    Anyway, is there any way to be able to hide all file extensions in OS X 10.4.11? I have the "Always show file extensions" check box *un*checked, but now, on downloaded files most of the time the extensions show.

    No major problem, I just like everything to be clear and not messed up with .ppt and .dmg...

    Thanks!

    I think the only way to do so is to manually do it for each file in Get Info. A user on here posted that running the command line "SetFile -a E fileName.ext" (without quotes) with the Developer Tools installed will hide it.
