File Extension List

New applications are always being created and it is essential for our computer to be able to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By viewing a files extension, our computer recognizes exactly how to make use of that file.

The data required to choose which application to utilise to open a file is read from the files extension. Data regarding the format and type of information carried within a file is indicated by a file extension. A few of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .doc for documents. You may already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always developing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
