Veiwing STL in paraview

I've been having some issues with paraview. I am unable to view my stl file in paraview.
I have been learning OpenFoam through tutorials and in all tutorials everyone has been able to view there stl in paraview but that has not been the case for me.. When I try and open -> select my stl, the file does not appear. It's like paraview will not accept stl files.. To my knowledge I should be able to do this.

This bothers me because in all beginner tutorials they start with making the stl and viewing it in paraview before building the mesh.

Has anyone ran across this problem? btw I'm using windows.
