Windows opens the ".webp" file because it's not a webp file. It's the wrong extension.

I just downloaded photo files of a priv account. They were all named ".webp". I tried opening them with IrfanView. IrfanView told me they are JPG Files with wrong extensions.
(IrfanView text in German:
"Warnung !
Die Datei: "filename.webp" ist eine JPG Datei mit falscher Erweiterung !
Umbenennen ?")

Good thing is that I rarely spot ".webp" files when downloading with JD. By far most of my downloaded photo files of IG are jpg files.

Probably because he doesn't want to download duplicates?
Old name: filename.jpg
New name: filename.webp
creates duplicates!

I would rather mass rename my file extensions than creating millions of duplicates. (No matter what the original file type of that files is)
