why asterik (*doc or *docx) in save types


G

Geffrye21

My save types roots did not use to have asterik before .doc (*.doc), only
..doc. But few months ago I noticed that all the saving options have got (*)
asterik before .doc, and this only appears on my deskstop word documents NOT
on my laptop word documents.

Is there any reason for this? Please help

In Word 2003, I see *.doc. The asterisk just indicates the unknown filename.

In fact, they should display *.doc or *.docx, etc. They have been displayed
like that as long as I can remember (which probably isn't that long these
days)!

That's my impression as well. I know that I've been pointing users to
specific formats for many years and always saw the file extensions given
that way.
