Can LibreOffice be configured to show filename extensions

The LibreOffice 4.4 opening screen lists files and icons. The filenames do not include or show the filename extension making it a challenge to recognize the specific filetype. Is there a way to configure LibreOffice to always show file extensions or to at least follow the Windows settings in this regard?

If I hover the cursor over the icon the full path and filename with extension is shown but this is tedious when all I want to do is find the file I need to work on.

Also this screen seems to only show large icons. Is is possible to configure this screen to show file details?

Are you seeing the extensions in other applications?

Which OS are you using?
