    Hey everyone,

    I just recently upgraded from panther to tiger. I understand finder and how mac applications are folders with a hidden ".app" extension. My problem is that the finder is not hiding the .app extension! Every program in /Applications is showing the ".app" and it's pretty annoying. Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it?

    By the way, I have another thread on the razer copperhead mouse and steermouse that no one has replied to at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=314881

    Click on Finder preferences.

    Under advanced de-select "show file extensions".

    First, try Finder menu -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Show all file extensions (deselect or uncheck).

    If that doesn't work, there might be something you need to reset using sudo defaults.

    that worked and was way simpler than I thought it would be.
    Thank you!
