    How to change HTACCESS filetye to unknown

    Unfortunately, I rushed and let wordpad open all my .htaccess files, now I don't have the extension to see them and I can't seem to restore them.

    I tried to remove the extension from the registry ROOT, but it did nothing and I still have the icon and no .HTACCESS extension.

    Can you guys help me?

    I don't know if this will help or not:

    Somewhere around is Shawn -Brink-, I tried: Unassociate File Type using "Unassociate File Types" Program, but that one doesn't run in Win 8.

    Now, I think I solved it with FileTypesMan.

    FileTypesMan - Alternative to 'File Types' manager of Windows

    Also thanks David Bailey

    I opened it with Win7 compatibility, searched for the .htaccess and instead of deleting the extension I edited the program and removed it, and to show the extension I selected the option to always show extension on this kind of file.
