Change file extension upper/lower case

Q: Change file extension upper/lower case

Everyday I upload some files to my website and to simplify my website operations, I use the same filename and just upload a file with new information every day. The case of file extensions is of no consequence to Windows 7, but it matters to my website. I want to standardize on one case and it doesn't matter which as long it's the same all the time. I have one app, the snipping tool, which seems to generally make files using uppercase, but I have some existing files that are lower case. I have tried to get rid of the lower case extensions by deleting the file and then recreating it with the same name. When I do, Windows changes the case from upper to lower. If I simply create a brand new file with no previous instances of that file in existence (as far as I know), then the default case is upper. How does one go about converting all existing files of a particular type to a standard file extension case, be it upper or lower.

thanks,

atom

A: Change file extension upper/lower case

Not sure you can as Windows is case insensative, but have you tried doing it from a Command prompt, enclosing the filename.ext in double quotes as "filename.ext"?

If that doesn't work, maybe a two step process would.

ren "FileName.EXT" FileName.EX"
ren "FileName.EX" FileName.ext"

Hi.

When I try to change the case from upper to lower or vice versa of filenames n windows explorer, the changes are not accepted. Also, adding or deleting of spaces in existing filename words is also not being accepted. I have admin privileges.

Thank you for help.

A:Can we change the upper/lower case of filenames in Windows Explorer?

Hi Seymoria, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Filenames in Windows Explorer are not case sensitive. This means that for Windows, the filenames ThisIsMyDocument.doc, THISISMYDOCUMENT.DOC and tHiSiSmYdOcUmEnT.DoC are all the same, the file would be found and can be referred to using any of these or any other combination of upper and lower case letters, as long as the name itself stays the same.

Therefore, if you have a file document_1.doc but you'd like to change the first letter to upper case D, selecting rename and changing the first d to D does nothing. Windows simply does not understand it, for it there was no change as the first letter did not change.

You need to work around this by renaming the file first to something else, then rename it again to Document_1.doc, this time using the upper case D. I use a neat trick here, changing the first letter from lower to upper case: I select rename, delete just the first letter of the filename, the one with lower case, then rename again this time entering the upper case first letter.

I have what i hope is a quick/easy question to answer. Whenever i transfer files from a CD-RW disk back to my hard drive, the names convert into upper case. This doesn't happen from the floppy drive or cd-r disks, only cd-rw & only on transfer back to the hard drive, not in transfer to the disk.

I have a HP cd writer (getting fairly old now) with adaptec direct cd software. i'm running windows 98. I DON'T have the "allow all upper case names" option in folder options ticked and it also happened on my old computer and is still happening on my new computer (same cd-writer transfered to the new computer).

Does anyone know how i can stop it happening? i know it's not a huge issue, but i've just bought a new computer (still getting it up & running) & i really don't want a PILE of files all with upper case names if i can avoid it, so really hoping it can be fixed

thanks

Depending on the virus, you may need to do a repair install - do you have the original XP installation CD?

Hi I changed all lower case of "city" to Uppercase "CITY" USING Find and Replace. But when I tried to change the same "CITY" to "city" it didn't work. However I did get the message we have made 12 replacements but not even one "CITY" was changed to "city." When I tried to replace "CITY" with another word in lowercase, it replaced the different word but in Uppercase. Please help this novice in word. Thank you.

A:How to change words in Uppercase to lower case

Hello Mike, thanks for your reply. No I am not using Excel but Ms Word 2016. I think I found the solution to my problem. Find and Replace is case sensitive. Therefore to change Uppercase words to lowercase one has to go to "more" option and check the box "Match Case." I did that and I was able to change all "CITY" to "city" using Find and Replace.I hope this may be helpful to someone. If anyone has other solutions to this problem please do post it.Your novice in MS Word

Hello - I removed my upper and lower filters so that my DVD drive would read but now I am unable to burn CD's via iTunes - is there a way I can replace those filters?
Thanks!
 

A:Upper & Lower filters - Need to replace

Only thing I can think of, would be to reinstall the programs that added them in the first place. (The filters are cd/dvd drivers/driver add-ons that are installed by third party software). In this case, they probably came from iTunes.

Otherwise a system restore would restore the registry to the state before you deleted them. Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

After having months of problems, my girlfriend finally got a replacement PC sent to her, but I've only gone and messed it up and now I'm in big trouble!

Upon arrival, the disk drive was not being recognized and wouldn't even open. I researched this and found it was a common problem, so attemted all the online fixes without success. Then, in another attempt, I STUPIDLY deleted the wrong upper and lower filters and now windows won't start at all.

Being a brand new computer there is no restore point to work from and, like I said, the disk drive won't even open to boot from disk!

So, is there any way I can fix the damage? All I can think of is borrowing and external disk drive and a copy of the CD, but I was hoping there might be a simpler way I can do this before the girlfriend comes home and kills me!

I also cannot eject my disk now because the computer isnt detecting an optical drive, let alone a CD to eject.

Hello everyone, I really need your help. My Sony Vaio laptop (model: SVE151G13M) did not recognize my dvd/cd-rom anymore and dumb as I am, I tried to fix this myself. On the website of Microsoft I read a step-by-step guide on how to remove the upper filters and lower filters to fix this problem. However, I may have removed too many, or the wrong filters. Now my laptop does not want to reboot anymore due to missing files. I read that I can recover the system by pushing the ASSIST button, choose troubleshoot/recovery etc. The system asks me to rescue my documents first, and of course that is my main goal.. Save as many files, photos, documents and videos as I can. I attached an external hard disk with plenty of space on there, chose to rescue the files and waited. However, I have tried multiple times but it is not working (error message). Does anyone know how to replace the deleted upper filters and lower filters, without having to reboot or recover the entire system and loose all of my files? I read something about 'Last known good configuration' but I cannot find this in the options when I press ASSIST. Please, I am desperate since I am also in the process of writing my master thesis and really need this computer.. :smileysad:

I have a Sony Vaio PCV-RS420 with a Pioneer DVR-106D dvd writer. I was creating a recovery disk when after writing the DVD, it asked for a cd-r. The drive kept having errors, and I checked the media on another pc and they were fine. I saw on several posings that removing the upper and lower filters from the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318) would fix the problem. Now it wont even recognize the dvd roma at all. The device mgr. says all is OK.

Uh-Oh - i did not back up the registry (makes me a dummy) and the recovery is not functioning due to my c partition being too small.

A:How to change a file extension from .dat to .mp3

The instructions are utterly irrelevant to the issue. The only reason to go to Folder Options > View would be to ensure that "hide file extensions" is not checked.

However this really belongs in "all other software" so I will move it there.

You will have to explain just what the ".dat" file is and how it got created and why you think it is an ".mp3" file.

If it's just a matter of changing the extension, you can simply right click on it and and rename it.

If it's a matter of actually converting the format, that's something else again...

As i scroll down - beneath all the folders there are the original pictures (at full size if I open them) - BUT they have the file extension (.jpg) renamed to .jpg.files
I have tried to change the filename back it wont let me. It also does the same to .avi's

Oh.. and if i do a virus check on a single file - Mcafee reports 2 files were scanned and no virus was detected. If I do it again it says 3 files were scanned and no virus was detected!! lol!

Hello Rwmol,

You could use the command below to set all .txt files on say the C: drive to be hidden. It will not hide any .txt files that are considered to be Windows 7 system files due to access denied though, but it will all other .txt files found on the C: drive.

If you like, you could substitute C with any drive letter that you would like to hide .txt files in, or substitute C:\ with the full path of a specific folder that you would like to hide all .txt files in it and it's subfolders.

This isn't an iphone related topic, but this is what happened. I updated my iPhone to 6.0, and I deciced to downgrade back to version 5.1.1. iTunes for whatever reason kept giving me an error where it wouldn't let me downgrade, so I looked into different ways to let me downgrade.

One web site made me go into C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc/ and change the "hosts" file to "hosts#_______" (they said to add this little extension to the end of it). I did so, and it changed "hosts" from a "file" to an "ms-dos file". The idea didn't work, and now I wish to change the "hosts" file back from an ms-dos file back to just a regular "file" but there's no easy way to do that apparently. Any ideas?

You can use FLV Player (free) to play flv files.

MediaCoder (MediaCoder - more than a universal audio/video transcoder) will convert flv. GUI is cludgy, but it gets the job done.

Hopefully I'm posting to the correct forum...

I transferred many music files from a backup drive onto a new laptop running Win8, and found most renamed as numbered files with a .ptl extension. Found out that my backup drive (Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex) doesn't like long filenames and renames them as referenced above. ("ptl" stands for "path too long"). I have been renaming them, dumping the ptl extension to get the files back as mp3's, but I get a confirmation window that I have to click "yes" to for each and every change I attempt. I'd love to kill the confirm popup for every file I change, it doubles the time involved for each file and I have enough work just renaming the files back to their original names. I've looked all over the control panel for something to uncheck to accomplish this, with no success. Can anyone point me to the appropriate location to turn this off?

Thanks,

Hi,

Ever since I've linked my MS and Skype account, my email is now always "seen" as something@ LIVE.COM.
Even my Windows Phone when I sign in with MS account, it gets recognized as @LIVE.COM at the end.

It's slightly annoying, I've checked all my settings on the web/computer/phone.. Nothing does the trick. I do sign in with lowercase email, but it somehow gets changed to uppercase LIVE.COM on it's own.

Anyone else experienced something like this?

This is a screenshot of switching local account to MS. Note that name before LIVE.COM is in lowercase, and I did sign in with all lower case email.

I've also asked on Microsoft answers webpage, but they have no idea what I'm talking about

I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and Nokia Lumia 930 (Cyan).

Any kind of tip is greatly appreciated.

Edit: add a space after @ in email to break the link.

Sounds like it's just a simple advertising gimmick, draws more attention to live.com.

I hope someone can help or explain this problem for me.

I have a DVD I made of my website. The website is constructed with every thing relative to the local system so that it will operate from the DVD.

My XP system has 2 DVD drives. One is a read only (E:) and the other is a R/W drive (F:). The problem is that on the read only drive ALL the directory and file names are in upper case and they are truncated to 8 characters, DOS files? For instance ThisIsanImage.jpg wil be THISISANI.JPG and index.html will be INDEX.HTML.

If I copy the files to my hard drive the result is the same. Of course the html involved will not function with the case of names and directories being changed.

However, if I put the DVD in my R/W drive the directory names and file names are correct and in mixed case with names longer than 8 characters. The website works fro this drive and copies to my hard drive ok. I have never run into this before.

Any one know what's going on. Do I have a setting some where in XP that I don't know about.

Your assistance is most welcome as I want to be able to send this DVD to other people, but I can't be confident that they won't have a problem.

Regards,
SD

Are you sure it only happens in Word 2003? Just to check, type a few lines in NotePad and WordPad to test. Let us know if you get all caps in those programs as well.

I'm not sure that System Restore will help for this problem, but if you've a recent Restore point that is just prior to the all-capitals trouble, you could try it.

What I first thought would be a simple keyboard problem apparently isn't. When I type the upper case D using the right shift button, I only can get a lower case "d". When using the left shift button, I get nothing but a cursor flash and no letter at all. If I hit the D key again (2nd time) holding down the left shift button, I do finally get the upper case D and as many as I want thereafter.

What I have done so far: Thinking this was a bad keyboard, I purchased a brand new keyboard.......same problem. I then borrowed the keyboard off my wife's computer which is working well.........same problem on my computer. So not likely a keyboard problem. I then uninstalled the keyboard driver and re-installed it THREE TIMES........still same problem. This is an HP Media Center computer with XP Pro so I downloaded the very latest keyboard driver for this keyboard and installed.........still same problem. Of course I rebooted after each install.

I then went to the PC Doctor diagnostic tools and did the keyboard test which puts a keyboard on the screen and as you press each key, it blanks out the key pressed on the screen. All keys work find except for when I go to upper case with either shift button and type the letter D. Instead of just the D going blank on the screen, the C key and the CTRL key go blank also at the very same time. So for some reason my D key is being translated somewhere into a D, C with the CTRL button signal. How can that be?

Something like:

Or do a bulk rename.

Close the VB editor and select the first cell in column A containing your data you want to copy down. Click TOOLS --> MACRO --> MACROS and select the macro from the list and run it. This macro will copy all your data except for the last value in column A because without actually seeing your workbook, I have no way knowing which line to stop at. Therefore, the code will end when it reaches the last value in column A.

Code:

Public Sub CopyData()

Do Until ActiveCell.Row = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

ActiveCell.Copy
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

Do Until ActiveCell.Value <> ""
ActiveSheet.Paste

I dont know how it happened but one day my cd drive was not working. the tray will open fine and it even lights up however it will not read anything. When i go to my computer the drive that usually says (:e) or whatever for it, is missing. Ive been looking online on how to fix this and nothing worked, then i read to delete the upper and lower filters but my lower and upper filters are missing. How can i get them back? I read that deleting them solved the problem for some people

A:cd drive missing from MY COMPUTER. Lower upper filters missing??

It could be a hardware problem ie. seized motor in your drive.

Quick way to test this. Insert a a disc in the tray, make a note of any writing or picture you can see on the disc, push the tray in. Wait for a minute or so, then eject the disc. If the picture/writing is in the same position as when you first put it in, then your drive motor is most likely knackered.

If this is the case, only real fix is a new drive.

The lower case L on my computer has gone berserk. It will not function correctly in Windows. When struck nothing appears. However, if the caps lock key is activated and the shift key is held down, the lower case L works. The upper case L and all other keys work fine.

This is only true in Windows. Iím running Windows Pro 2000 and in the Windows login screen, lower case Ls can be typed in both the user name and the password fields. As soon as Windows comes up, it stops working.

I have tried three different keyboards, reloaded Windows 2000 and the keyboard software but the key still fails.

I would appreciate any help.

My computer:
--------------------------
AMD Athon Processor
AT/AT Compatible
256 MB RAM

The keyboard is a Microsoft Internet Pro PS2 (Brand New)
 

A:Lower case L does not type

You say that you have tried different keyboards, and that outside of windows the lower case L works, so the only thing that I could think of (and it's a long shot), is that when Windows has loaded (and any startup programs as well), a process or program has changed the mapping of the lower case L to perform some other function.
Have you tried booting into safe mode? This should stop any non-Windows programs from loading. Give this a try and see what happens. If the L works normally, then you need to see what programs are being loaded (in normal mode), and remove them one at a time (restarting and testing each time).

Seth

A:lsass.exe (lower case L)

If it's "lsass.exe" with a lower case "L", then it is a virus in the Sasser family, most likely. You'll need to scan it with a good antivirus either by using a boot CD with an antivirus on it or take your drive out and hook it up as a secondary drive in another computer. That should get you back up and running. You may have to do a repair installation of Windows after you've scanned it.

I just upgraded my 8 year old iiyama monitor for a new Dell monitor with a bigger screen with higher resolution - oh and I have got new spectacles. I had replaced the capacitors twice in the iiyama (having to keep jabbing the "On" button to get the current surge going) as I don't care for these new wide screen type monitors but I had to get updated eventually.

Anway, with my fantastic new monitor, I now notice that on both the Desktop (of Vista) and in Winodws Explorer all the letters "i" and "l" have an almost imperceptible red fringe or hue. How weird is that?

This happens whether I use the VGA or the DVI cable connection.

Amazingly, this issue was raised by wguru and Saga Lout on this forum 18 months ago but it is not clear to me whether anyone ever came up with a solution. The possibility of a virus or registry corruption error was mentioned but I did not understand whether this was ever proven.

I run about 3 virus programs most days and I woudl be devastated if I unknowingly had a virus. It is difficult but not impossible to believe. Having said that, I have occasionally tweaked the Rgeistry e.g. to get rid of "klingons".

I suspect I have had this issue a while but only with the new monitor has it become noticeable.

Any suggestions on what to try next would be appreciated.

As a newbie, first poster, it seems that I am prohibited from sending a PM to wguru or Saga Lout.

Not knowing the 'correct'omundo name for these things has made googling for'um a lot harder.

Does anyone know why certain files won?t change the permission i put on the parent folders? It is quite strange,as it is only about 5% of the files on a given drive,when i change the parent permissions.

I am running a server with all my media stored as mkv and iso,and i remove ALL permissions from all drives except boot,and replace them with the permission Everyone,which should allow me to manipulate every aspect of the drive from any terminall on my home network,however this is not the case,some of the files have weird permissions which locks me out,and i have to manually change the permission of these files even though the parent drive and folders have the "Everyone" permission alone.

Anyone know why this happens?

Is there an upper file size limit on copy & paste function? I've tried to copy my music collection (16.5GB) via copy & paste & it just does nothing. Rebooting will result in copy dialogue window showing briefly before disappearing from sight.



Can anyone suggest a good third party file manager?

Okay - the title is a bit strange.

It's like this: I open a program/game/whatever fullscreen.
And the programs loads, opens - and minimize to the taskbar.
I can klick on the icon again and again - it will be minimized over and over again.
The program then shows like 0.5sec of going on - and my desktop is shown again.

I use Win7 Enterprise x64 on that Laptop.
Some programs (so as "BlobbyVolley)" need a resolution of 640x480 - and my monitor cannot show it.

There is no problem with my Desktop-PC with Win7 Home Premium x63 - it opens every program. Without changing the resolution of the screen by myself. Then there are many pixels - but I don't care.

So - I hope, I could make myself clear.
If not - just ask. I am waiting for your questions and solutions

Kind regards

A:Programs load but land in the taskbar until change to lower resolution

I know exactly what you're referring to. This used to always happen to me with Battle Field 3 - and some other full screen games. To fix this, I would restart my computer and the first thing I would do is open my game. (it would actually open) Then, I would set my game to "open in window," then once it started up I could choose to put it back in full screen.

This really isn't the most efficient solution but it worked for me. You may be able to get a better reply. :P

I have been using this same Excel file for many years. I viewed on my new home laptop 2 days ago, using a 2010 Excel Version. It was created on 2007.

I opened it on my work computer, version 2003, and now get the above error message on both machines. The file can no longer be opened.

I have tried emailing it, still won't open.

I have chenged the file type to both .xls and .xlxs neither open.

I downloaded the program on the home page of this site, and it said no file issues, no known problems for this file.

When I click Open File, it still shows where I had the file opened (the file name in lighter gray font - but cannot open.) The original file is in black, and I can open. But, get that message.

I also tried to open and fix - and I tried both options, with formulas, and without formulas, and all it opened was foreign characters.

Any other suggestions? Or is this file gone? Unfortunately, my most recent back up is 3-4 months old...

Thank you for your help,

Hi!
So, my problem is that I want to change the icons I have with .txt extensions on my desktop.
But I want to be able to have different icons for different .txt documents.
For example, one icon for my "Bus.txt" document, and another icon for my "Train.txt" document.

Is this possible, and how can you do it?

Thanks!

Hello Ikka, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You can change the default icon for TXT file extensions to any icon that you want using the tutorial below, but you can only use one icon for all TXT file extensions and not multiple icons.

I'm trying to open in Excel 2010 a file with .exf extension that is always a pipe delimited text file. I have set, using Windows file associations, to open this type of file with Excel. But, I would like for it to recognize that it is pipe delimited, so that I don't have to click on Delimited, Other, "|" to import the file. Any ideas? I also thought about using a macro to save some steps as well. Thanks for your help!

Hi, I want to assign a custom icon to every file type no matter what the associated app is. I can change individual default icons, but they get overwritten by the application icon. Is it possible to do this :

And if so, how ? (I want to keep the file associations: .css and .txt are still getting open by Sublime, .ini by WordPad and so on ...)

Thanks.

A:Change Icons based on extension only, not the associated application.

The following Microsoft Dev Centre page explains how this can be done via the Registry. (Note: I have not tested this myself in Windows 10)

Hello,

I'm downloading ppt files either from an email or from an ftp site. They are '.ppt' files before I download them, but they change to '.shs' files after I've downloaded them, an extension that Windows doesn't recognise. I've tried manually changing the extension in properties but this doesn't work. Does anyone know why this is happening?

I am running Windows Vista with Office 2007. It doesn't happen with all ppt files.

Many thanks.

I have made a very large error. I was trying to open a python file that is saved as a .dll and I left the Always use this program check box checked. Now, I am trying to make it where there is no default program or any program to open this file because there are many types of .dll. I have tried deleting the extension and unassociating it. How do I get whre there is no default program that opens any .dll extension.

A:Change the default program that opens .dll extension files?

Uninstall Python. That should dis-associate it from .dll. Then reinstall.

I've been alternating between zipped programs and installers. This played havoc with program associations. Uninstalling worked.

Hi there
on the download is there a SAVE AS option -- that might work if you change the default to .xls

Otherwise I think there are some xlsx viewers where you could view the file or change it to xls. (Note changing to xls will possibly remove some formatting etc).

Hello

I dont know if Im on the right section to post this.

I just want to ask to our fellow members and gurus here, I dont know what went wrong but suddenly the unknown file types in my Windows 7 PRO x64bit doesnt display its file extensions anymore..

How can i restore it to default? to display the file extensions on unknow file types in windows 7...

Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you..

A:Display File Extension on Unknown File Types

Windows Explorer/Organise/Folder & Search Options/View.

You should find it in there. (that's "hide extentions for know file types") Might be what you need.
