How to hide the .cloud extension?

on my macOS 10.12 how do I hide the .cloud extension ?

I tried right clicking the file and get info and the name & extension dropdown ‘hide extension’ is greyed out!

The reason I want to hide it is because it takes up so much space in the finder column and hides the more important actual name of the file

Hi @2commakid,
There doesn’t appear to be a way to do this with files that have more than one extension. Most placeholder files will essentially have two extensions, the original and the .cloud placeholder extension. macOS doesn’t seem to allow hiding the extensions of those files. You can hide the extension for placeholder folders, since they only have one extension, however.
