File Extension List

Our personal computer needs to know how to access particular files and specify what applications they are affiliated with. By considering a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to process that file.

To determine which software to open a file with, your system first gathers the needed data by examining the files extension. Data about the format and type of information carried within a file is indicated by a file extension. For example, some typical file extensions include: .gif for pictures, .rar for compressed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever developing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
