File Extension List

New programs are always being developed and it is essential for our computer to know how to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. By considering a files extension, our system recognizes precisely how to process that file.

To determine which application to load a file with, your computer starts by gathering the needed data from the files extension. Information regarding the format and type of data carried within a file is designated by a file extension. As an example, many general file extensions include: .gif for pictures, .rar for compressed files, and .avi for movies. You might already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always growing library of software and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
