I have Android 4.0 for Galaxy Note 10.1. How do you rename files to change the file extension? For example, if you have a text file extension "..xml" how do you rename to ".txt"

Almost all File Manager apps support renaming extensions. Install one from Play Store. Some best ones are: Solid Explorer, ES File Explorer, Astro File Manager, Root Explorer.
