File Extension List

New applications are always being produced and it is essential for our personal computer to be able to tell what kind of file it is accessing. By looking at a files extension, our personal computer knows exactly how to access that file.

To find out which program to open a file with, your personal computer starts by gathering the necessary information from the files extension. A files extension holds clues to the formatting of the file and what variety of data it carries. A few of the more common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for sound, and .txt for plain text. You might already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever growing library of programs and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never seen.
