File Extension List

New applications are constantly being created and it is essential for our system to be able to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is for!

To detect which program to open a file with, your computer starts by collecting the essential information from the files extension. Data about the type and format of information contained within a file is indicated by the file extension. As an example, some typical file extensions include: .gif for images, .zip for packed files, and .mov for movies. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always developing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never seen.
