File Extension List

New applications are constantly being produced and it is essential for our pc to know how to tell what kind of file it is accessing. By considering a files extension, our computer knows exactly how to access that file.

The data essential to choose which software to utilise to open a file is taken from the files extension. Information about the type and format of information carried within a file is designated by the file extension. A few of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for sound, and .doc for documents. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always growing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you may have never seen.
