why do some files in windows have 2 extensions,
i dont understand why Microsoft and other large companies do this, only 1 extension is read, the other ignored
is it so people will know that its a certain file even if the 'hide extensions for known file types' is checked/ticked

Because of the name of the files has it and then the other is actually the extension.

A filename is set out like this: File-Name.Extension. The first part actually contains the name of the file. The second part is the actual extension (for example, txt is a plain text file).
