I tried everything I could think of to make it mess up on the vista computer here, and I could not. Whatever extension I typed on the file was what it saved as.
(I do rarely use notepad however as I like edit plus much better, even for the simple handy file browser window pane to the left that lets me quickly work through a directory of script includes for example, not to mention the better find and replace, etc, etc.) But I think there must be something awfully wrong with the machine in question.
I would open Explorer, click Organize, Folder Options and uncheck the "hide file extensions for known file types" for the folder where it's saved, or apply to all folders (I don't know how that option is useful or why by default it's checked as it sure seems to cause more confusion than helping anyone.)
