View "extensions of known file types" in a GPO

Hello All:

We have multiple GPO’s in place to manage lab and classroom machines. We restrict the folder options section under “tools” within the file explorer on XP. What has happened however is that users can view the details of the file but the file extension itself is missing. There is an option under “Tools” -> “”Options” -> “View” “Hide extensions of known file types” which allows file extensions to be viewed. My question is where in a GPO can you select this option so if a user wishes to view the file details under “View” -> “Details” that it would show the file extension?

Many Thanks!!

Hi FlaglerCollege,

Check this thread:

(The REG.EXE command is available in Windows XP only).

Thank you for this information. We do a bulk of our desktop modification work through the editing of the Default User. I will most likely have to go there and make these adjustments for our next semester lab image. The article you provided is excellent however since the student login is so restricted the reg add command will not work in the login script. If I place the file on a network drive and have the same user double click on it it will work. A little confused however it is a temporary measure until I make the change to the default profile. Thank you for your assistance on this!

FlaglerCollege,

You can create a .REG script and run it in the logon script. This helps as long as the user has access to regedit.exe.

True however they have restrictions on this as well. I think I will go and try and update the default user profile and go that route. However I appreciate your help as your link and information helped me out.

Thank you :)
