Arduino file extension Answered

I haven't been using Arduino for a while but there is something going on with the file extensions. When i rename and save a file the extension gets changed and it can't be opened again. Just adding .pde or .ino doesn't do it. I am using .022 and 1.0.5 for some applications so i think going between them is causing the problem. Is it possible to find a common file name or remove the extension preferences so i can retrieve my sketch.

You shouldn't be renaming the files. Just open them up in 1.0 and save them as a 1.0 file.

Don't rename them by clicking on the file. Open the file in the IDE and then Save As to save it as a differnt name.

Rigth click, Open With, Notepad. Save As a notepad. Then edit the extension to what you want. This should allow the IDE to open it.
