Win95 truncated extensions support in Windows NT


Certain command file operations: dir, del, copy, and move may not operate as
expected. NT may be set to operate like Win95 on file name extensions. For
example “del *.htm” would delete .htm and .html extensions in Win9X and in NT if
its default behaviour has been changed to emulate Win9x behaviour.

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\
Name:
Win95TruncatedExtensions
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0default NT behavior
Value: 1win95-like behavior
