Making back ups


I have a laptop which I have lubuntu installed on. It's the only laptop on which I have linux. I am creating back ups of the texts I have written on the linux laptop. However, the file format is "file"... so I can't open it on my windows laptop.

Are these files going to work on every lubuntu laptop?

Use the "Open with" and choose Wordpad - I suspect it will work fine...

Simply add the extension. What kind of text is, it? Plain? Then add a .txt for each if you're using a graphical environment. It's going to be easier.
