Using XP, when I try to rename a photo file I lose the photograph. Any
suggestions?

You should have started a new thread rather than jumping into an
existing one.

Can you see the file extensions in Explorer (the period and letters
after, like .exe or .jpg)? You need to be sure you're renaming only
what's in front of the period, not what's after. So if you have a file
named photo.jpg and you rename it to photo, you'll lose the ability to
see it.

You could put the photograph in a safe place before renaming the photo file.
(Sorry, but this is just my way of pointing out that your question is not
very clearly stated.)
