    Hi got as far as dragging shortened file to desktop but Vista (I believe) doesn’t have a way to change file extensions?

      To both of you, you need to enable windows to show the extensions of files before you can change them. Heres how to do that:
      1. Click Start
      2. Select Control Panel
      3. Select Classic View
      4. Double-click Folder Options
      5. Click the View Tab
      6. Uncheck Hide Extensions for Known File Types
      7. Click Apply button (at the bottom of the window)
      8. Click Apply to Folders button (at the top of the window)
      9. Click OK

    Thanks so much for this, a big help and a great way to make files out of songs we’ve paid for already

    You can see file extensions in Vista:

    Go to start, click computer. Right under the address bar you will see a number of choices. Choose Organize, it’s on the far left. In the pull down menu is Folder and Search Options. The is similar to XP except there’s no file types tab. Under view uncheck Hide Extensions for known file types.
