i don't know if it is any different for server 08 but in xp you go to tools/folder options/view and then there is a tick box for "hide extensions for known file types" which will be ticked by default.
i hope this helps, this is my first post.

Control Panel > Folder Options.  From there, it's the same as before.

I have to disagree with the split.

Server 08 - and Vista, for that matter - are different from XP.  You can't access folder options from Windows Explorer anymore.  You access folder options from Control Panel.
