File Extension List

Our system needs a way to access particular files and ascertain what applications they are associated with. By examining a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to access that file.

To find out which program to access a file with, your computer first gathers the essential data from the files extension. Data about the format and type of data carried inside a file is indicated by the file extension. Some of the more general file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .doc for documents. These common file extensions are well known to many pc users, but with fresh software coming every day, with it comes new file types which you might not have seen.
