as subject? In Window Explorer it's just a tick in "hide extension for know file type" but how can we do it with FreeCommander? I tried to add "HideExtension=1" in the .ini file but it doesnt work!
Many thanks

upgrade to FreeCommanderXE, it has an option to do this

Unfortunately, there is no option in FreeCommander to hide file extensions. (I personally have never had a problem with this, but I was surprised when I noticed you could set up a column for file extension but not filename sans extension.)

You can hide it from profile settings. Right-click on a header in a tab and select Profile settings, then, Modify setting. You can tick the feature at the bottom of the window.

There is a deep hidden option:

Tools/Settings/View/Column profiles

There, select a profile, then "Define columns" button (a hammer). There is open window where columns can be defined. The last check is: Show extension in "Name" column.

There "extension" for file name can be enabled or disabled.
