Default File Retrival From .exe Format

HI ALL,
RECENTLY I WAS INTO SOME RESEARCH ON PREPARING SOME TECH TUTORIALS ON SP2 .SP2 IS WONDERFULL ,BUT TODAY I HAVE SOME DIFFERENT PROBLEM .PROBABLY A SMALL ONE .
THE LAST TUTORIAL THAT I WAS WRITING ,I SAVED IT IN A WORDPAD BUT WHILE NAMING IT ,I BY MISTAKE I NAMED IT AS .EXE EXTENSION .NOW I AM UNABLE TO RETRIVE MY DOCUMENT .I KNOW IT IS NOT VERY BIG ISSUE BUT ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED AS I WORKED OVERA AN HOUR OVER IT.


REGARDS ,
KEITH:beard:

You can name a file whatever you want.....and always change it later. Just because you named it with an ".exe" extention doesn't mean that it's an executable. Just simply change the name back to a .txt/.doc or whatever you changed it from.

You may have to uncheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" under Folder Options > View
