> What about making .com extension files?  

These are obsolete now. They were basically executable files 
that fitted inside a single memory segment of 64Kb on a 8086 
processor! As such they cpould iudse a simpler, faster memory 
model than .exes

Unless you are using a very old PC you have no need of .com 
files. You can of course change the name of a .exe to a .com
if it makes you feel better! :-)
