I'm sure everyone can relate to using poor filenames occasionally. As far as default filenames go:

  • Notepad (XP) = *.txt - Cannot save without choosing a new filename.
  • Word (2003) = Title (if set by template) > First sentence of document > Doc1.doc, Doc2.doc, etc
  • Paint (XP) = untitled.bmp

Using the image format (.jpg) to store text information (like addresses) will also contribute to an annoying future if you ever need to copy data from that file into some other programme. sirKitKat (talk) 09:58, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Could be a JPEG because it's a camera photo of the address on something. That'd make it even more perverse because most cameras create files with names like DSC01234.jpg meaning he's given it the "Untitled" moniker on purpose. 14:23, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Something I come a cross now and then is the result of the following situation: You are in the process of selecting multiple files while holding CTRL. During the process of quickly selecting the next file, you accidentally move your cursor/mouse while clicking the next file, resulting in copying all the selected files on the same location :) sirKitKat (talk) 13:36, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
