This simple application lets you easily change the extension of a single file or multiple files within a folder, though it offers little else in the way of features or capabilities. Extension Changer offers two ways to change file extensions. Open the program and drag and drop files or folders into a small inset box under the Main tab, fill in the new extension, and press Change. The easier method is to right-click on files and folders and select Edit the extension. Your document or folder is already displayed and you need only type the new extension. Changes were immediately applied. Desktop and Start menu shortcuts aren't automatically added, but since the program is so easily available when it's needed, this isn't a problem. A simple tool is offered to search for more information on extensions. This utility is easy to use, does exactly what it says, and is offered free of charge.
