File Extension List

New software is always being produced and it is important for our computer to know how to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. By looking at a files extension, our pc recognizes exactly how to make use of that file.

The data needed to select which software to use to access a file is taken from the files extension. A files extension contains tips to the data format of the file and what variety of information it holds. A few of the more common file extensions include .exe for executables, .mp3 for sound, and .doc for documents. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever growing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you might have never seen.
