    How do I get this tab to show *ALL* extensions, including extensions
    like .BAT, .EXE etc, which do not show up now...

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Yes, I know *that* setting!

    What I want is the "Tools", "Folder Options", "File Types" tab of
    Explorer to show me *ALL* extensions, including, as mentioned .BAT
    and .EXE etc.

    You mean the "Registered File Types" listing.
    At this point, I don't know how (if you can) show some of the more security
    sensitive file extensions there.

    I assume you would have to change the EditFlags for each file type in
    the Registry to allow them to show.

    I found a 'batfile' key, saved its "EditFlags" (were 0x00000430) and
    set them to 0x00000000. Rebooted.

    ZILCH!

    ..BAT still doesn't show up...

    Puzzled... (and pissed off)

    Sorry about that. I remember it worked in Win98 (Bit 1, byte 0 if set
    removed the file type from File Types tab) and really should have
    looked at it in XP before responding.

    RE: Explorer "Tools" "Folder Options" "Tile Types" not showing all ext

    Maybe you mean to show exrensions of known file types. Its in Tools > Folder
    options > View tab, uncheck "Hide extensions of known file types". If this is
    checked .bat, .exe, etc won't show in explorer.

    Re: Explorer "Tools" "Folder Options" "Tile Types" not showing allextensions [SOLVED]

    The solution is patently obvious, NOT!

    Select 'New', enter the required non-showing extension, e.g. BAT and
    click on 'Advanced' and then 'OK', et voila, it appears!
