How to Show File Extensions on Windows 10

In Windows 10, most of the file extensions are hidden by default.

I said "most" because few file extensions such as .mui and .cpl are shown by default. You can see these file extensions within "System32" folder of your PC.

If you wish, you can unhide hidden file extensions at any time you want.

In this post, we will see two different ways to do this task. Let's look at those ways in detail.
