Remove Notification on Change Filetype(15 posts)
I've received that message many times - both in my XP days, and since I've had Windows 7.
For example, try changing the filename of "criticalfile.dll" to "criticalfile.old" and you'll probably receive that message.
However, I've never thought of how or why one might wish to defeat the warning, as mentioned by the OP.
another example would be ...
if you downloaded a themepack only because you planned on extracting an image from it or a sound effect - or whatever.
as you might already know - if you change the extension from .themepack to .zip you are then able to extract the contents. if you didnt know - now you know
so anyway, after changing the extension you will get that same little notification too.
Slem, I think these 'notifications' are a native part of Windows. Just like when you try to delete a file, it doesn't get deleted instantly, it gives you a warning/prompt, whatever you call it. Not saying that it "cannot" be disabled, but its generally better to let it stay there.
