when you the click "Add vector" button, the file browser will first be defaulted to show all files in the folder. Once you change this in the drop-down at the bottom in "Files of type:" from "All files" to ESRI shapefiles", it will filter to show only .shp.
The dialog will remember this setting.

I am working with elementary students in using QGIS to develop spatial reasoning.

I have created .shp files for them to use but when they go to the folder to add the .shp, all the supporting files are also present, >so we are struggling. Is there a way to set the settings so that only the .shp appears as an option to them?

Thank you in advance for your help and I apologize if this is a silly question
