       A simple solution is to always use 'save as' rather than 'save' -
           then you merely choose the desired suffix as well as the desired
       with 'save', the computer does its own thing  ;-)

I strongly recommend some computer crash course. File name associations
are free.  There is nothing hard wired to the system. You can open any
file with any program you want. You can tell your desktop environment
which programs can open which types of files and which single program is
the preferred one to be used on double-click.
First of all, any user who is forced to use MS Windows should turn off
the option to hide known file name extensions. Since Windows '95 this is
the major obstacle which prevents people from understanding their system.
