In Linux, files without extensions are not typically used, but if you need to save a file without an extension, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the terminal: Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window.
  2. Navigate to the directory where you want to save the file: Use the cd command followed by the directory path. For example, to navigate to the Downloads folder:
cd ~/Downloads

  1. Create a file without an extension: Use the touch command followed by the desired file name. For example, to create a file named "example" without an extension:
touch example

  1. Confirm the file was created: Use the ls command to list the files in the current directory. The file you just created should be displayed.

Note: Keep in mind that without an extension, the file may not be recognized by certain programs or utilities that depend on having an extension to determine how to handle it.
