File Extension List

Our computer requires a way to access particular files and determine what software they are affiliated with. By viewing a files extension, our personal computer recognizes exactly how to make use of that file.

The data needed to select which application to utilise to access a file is read from the files extension. Information about the type and format of data contained inside a file is indicated by the file extension. Some of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for sound, and .txt for plain text. You might already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you may have never discovered.
