That's just your file manager (or whatever it's called on your OS) that 
doesn't know about C++, or doesn't care to make the distinction.

They're all just text files anyway, so it doesn't really matter, unless you 
absolutely want the file manager/desktop/whatever to open C and C++ files 
using different applications. As long as you're just using the files with 
development tools in the usual way, you don't need to care about this. :-)
