File Extension List

New applications are constantly being developed and it is important for our system to be able to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is for!

The data necessary to select which program to utilize to open a file is taken by examining the files extension. A files extension holds hints to the format of the file and what variety of data it contains. Some of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .mp3 for audio, and .doc for documents. You may already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the ever developing library of programs and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
