In that case unhide file extensions to make sure you have renamed it correctly. If you have and that's still the issue blame Windows.

In that case rename the file by right clicking, pressing rename, then deleting the .txt extension. It sounds like you'll have to do this every time.

open the text file in notepad, go "File" ---> "Save as..." at "File name" write whatever.bat and at "Save as type" make sure "All files" is selected, then just press the save-button.
QUACK! QUACK!
