    As they should.

    "respectfully, based off of that ignorant response it has become clear we will not be educated in this class."

    Similar thing happened to me 2 years back. We had subject called Computer Security with some encryption techniques and some brief history of viruses. And teacher asked us "what is the definition of virus?". So, I stood up and told her, "it's any program or script which harms our computer and which is made intentionally for this purpose".
    She fucking responded that no one makes virus, they generate by themselves if you don't use computer for days or weeks... FML..( we didn't left class though.)
    And sorry for my bad English.

    It really does. But not a valid one.

    @andros705 no. since @pmso corrected the wording I thought it humorous to correct his.

    So If u add .PDF to a .txt it becomes a PDF ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I guess

    @lazysnail technically there might be some merit to to those claims. If you leave a computer turned off for weeks and then lick the keyboard, you might pick up a virus or two. Maybe repeated use of the keyboard keeps the germs off the keytops and on the fingertips instead.

    Even I had a friend..
    He ask for help about transparency in image .
    So advice given: convert your image in to png format.
    He just edited extension .jpeg to .png

    I had a teacher for advanced document editing classes. He sayd that he is a pro and using MS Office since 12 years.

    I asked him if I have a .doc file and need it as a .docx file, can I just rename it?

    Teacher: yes that will work

    I told him to try and get ahead, well he failed and couldnt open the doc anymore. I explained to him that you need to convert it first in Word and then save it.

    I told him that I need to be here but I wont listen to any of his classes anymore, I just sit there and played Canabalt on my Computer over a USB Stick whenever he was giving classes.

    He sayd that I will fail the exam with such a attitude. At last I took the exam an passed with a perfect score of 98% (Degree 5.9). I had one of the best grades in this exam in my country 😂

    @Gahan most people don't understand that the file format is determined by the data within -- or what a file really is.

    At least our designers know you can't just replace the extension to convert it, but they occasionally get files from other people (presumably clients) that have been renamed like that.

    this gave me a good laugh.
    although converting a file to another format should be a basic and easy thing to know about, yet the reality is the fact that most of us has really tried this stupdity many times ( at least i do it on regular basis when i have a .py file and don't have a compiler around).
    This should rather be an embedded solution, like alongside rename, we have an option to "rename file" or "rename extension" . on clicking rename extension, an extension changing wizard should pop.

    just a UX idea to ponder about for the Desktop app devs
