File Extension List

Our pc requires a way to access specific files and specify what software they are affiliated with. By examining a files extension, our personal computer recognizes exactly how to access that file.

To detect which application to open a file with, your personal computer starts by gathering the needed information from the files extension. A files extension contains clues to the format of the file and what kind of information it carries. As an example, many common file extensions include: .tga for images, .zip for compressed files, and .avi for video. You might already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever developing library of applications and operating systems there are many more that you may have never seen.
