Change File Extensions Using Command prompt

Sometimes changing file extensions helps fool the system to pass restricted file formats. Like, G mail does not support.exe attachments. Instead of putting.exe files in.zip or.rar, you can change the extension to.exe1 or anything else and send it through G mail.

Steps to Change File Extensions with Command prompt

ren filename.extension newfilename.newextension

Filename means your current filename, extension is the current file extension, newfilename is the new name assigned instead of the old name that is optional, new extension is the new file extension.

Make sure to make blank spaces available.
