File Extension List

New software is constantly being created and it is important for our system to know how to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By examining a files extension, our pc recognizes precisely how to access that file.

To detect which program to open a file with, your pc first collects the needed information by examining the files extension. Data regarding the format and type of information carried within a file is designated by a file extension. For example, many typical file extensions include: .jpg for pictures, .zip for packed files, and .avi for video. You might already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always growing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never discovered.
