What is File SP45123?

The answer to this and similar questions is that there is no way to tell. By default all file extensions are hidden in XP and Windows 7. It’s stupid. Before people start clicking on files, they need to know what type of file they are. Is it a wav file or jpg, or mp4 or possibly an exe file which will run a program. The way to fix this problem is to get to Folder Options and under View – unclick the option which says – “hide file extensions.”  Then apply. Now you’ll be able to see that file SP45123.jpg is a picture.
