abc.odt and abc.odp (in my case also in same folder)

only one shows up in "recent files" list. renaming one of them to a different name fixes it.

sorry, forgot my specs - Version (Build ID: 58f22d5) on winxp sp3 - extensions show up for me too, just one didnt make its way in the list, until I gave it a different name.

LibO 3.6.3 - in recent files everything is fine. Shown both files (they are in same folder) - abc.odt and abc.ods. In Windows Explorer option "Hide extensions for known file types" is set to off (all files are shown with their extensions, even in LibO recent files).

@Timon - what Windows are you running?

In 3.5.7 I am seeing some inconsistencies in Recent Files. Sometimes file do not show up also I saved them. I don't know yet enough to make a bug report. Thus consider this only as a hint that there could be something wrong. I personally would always have the extensions visible.
