I frequently like to change my file extensions a lot for experimental purposes like seeing how programs will react to a certain filetype or changing it for compatibility. I usually do this ~50 times a day. However, it's extremely annoying to have to go through the warning whenever I change something. I have RenameMaster, but it's not very convenient when individually naming files. Is there a way to disable the file extension warning? I have only found instructions for Macs, but I'm sure Windows XP won't have the same configurations.
I am very aware of the potential security risks and problems that might come along with this, but I would really like to know how to disable it.
"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell
