Introduction

File extensions aren't shown on the editor tabs.

Background

The editor in IAR Embedded Workbench show file names as Microsoft Windows is configured to provide them. This means that if file extensions are turned off, Windows will deliver file names in that form.

Solution

Change settings in Windows Folder Options for the folder where the source files reside. For example, with Windows 7, the setting to disable is called "Hide extensions for known file types".
