File Extension List

Our system needs to know how to access particular files and determine what applications they are associated with. By looking at a files extension, our computer knows exactly how to make use of that file.

To determine which program to load a file with, your system first collects the required data by examining the files extension. A files extension contains hints to the formatting of the file and what sort of information it holds. A few of the more general 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 developing library of programs and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
