Excel 2016 filename extension no longer showing in footer

Occasional Visitor

When I add the path and filename to the footer of an excel worksheet (using excel 2016), the filename extension is no longer showing.  How can I get the filename extension back in the filename when adding path and file to the header/footer?

Assuming that you are on Windows:

Start File Explorer.

On the View tab of the ribbon, click Options.

Activate the View tab.

Clear the check box 'Hide extensions for known file types'.

Click OK.
