Renaming thumbnail photo jpg

  J. I. 09:57 16 Nov 2005

When I try to rename a thumbnail photo jpg I receive the following message( If you change a file extension the file may become unusable. Do you want to change YES OR NO ) If I sellect YES the thumbnail changes to a plain file format. Yesterday I was able to edit my thumbnails. Today on switching on my Comp I was presented with above message. Anyone experienced this and knows the answer, also is there any way I can recover my photo thumbnail from the file like format it changed into. Grateful for any HELP.

Click the file, select Rename and add the .jpg suffix again.

Thanks Skyver. Your answer spot on. Why it allowed me to edit yesterday and not today is a mystery. In any case your suggestion sorted the problem. Again, many thanks Joni
