    right-mouse click the desktop of windows 2008, new text document, save it
    with extension *.bat, but it append with .bat.txt.

    I understand microsoft concern that text file shld append with .txt.

    Is there are registry setting to default to the extension we want ?
    Otherwise i have to go cmd prompt to rename the file extension.

  2. If you open the "Save as Type" box (the one below the "File name"
    box) and select "All files" then your file will be saved with whatever
    extension you specify, without ".txt" being appended.
