File Extension List

New programs are always being created and it is essential for our personal computer to know how to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By looking at a files extension, our computer recognizes precisely how to access that file.

The information essential to choose which application to use to load a file is learned by examining the files extension. A files extension contains tips to the format of the file and what kind of information it carries. Some of the more frequent file extensions include .exe for executables, .mp3 for sound, and .txt for plain text. You might already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of software and operating systems there are much more that you might have never discovered.
