Hide file extension via rename
Authored by: innate on Apr 05, '06 07:37:32AM

I don't think that removing the extension is desctructive. If you remove the extension in the finder, it will just turn on the "Hide Extension" flag for that file. The extension is still there (which you can see in Get Info).

Not for me

I have 10.3.9, so maybe that makes a difference, but I just got info on a TIFF file. It showed the full file name with extension and had a "hide extension" checkbox (unchecked). I closed the info window, removed the ".tif" extension in the Finder and got info again. This time the file name was displayed WITHOUT an extension and the "hide extension" checkbox was gone entirely.
