New software is constantly being developed and it is important for our system to know how to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. That is precisely what a file extension is for!

The data essential to choose which software to utilize to load a file is taken by examining the files extension. Data about the type and format of information contained within a file is indicated by the file extension. As an example, some typical file extensions include: .gif for pictures, .zip for compressed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these general extensions but with the always growing library of software and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
