File Extension List

New applications are constantly being developed and it is important for our pc to know how to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. By examining a files extension, our personal computer knows exactly how to process that file.

To detect which application to load a file with, your computer first gathers the needed data from the files extension. Data about the type and format of data carried inside a file is designated by a file extension. As an example, many common file extensions include: .tga for images, .rar for packed files, and .mov for movies. You might already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never seen.
