File Extension List

Our system needs to know how to access specified files and ascertain what programs they are affiliated with. That is exactly what a file extension is for!

To detect which application to open a file with, your personal computer starts by gathering the essential data by examining the files extension. Data regarding the type and format of information contained within a file is designated by the file extension. As an example, some common file extensions include: .gif for images, .zip for compressed files, and .avi for video. You may already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever growing library of programs and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never seen.
