File Extension List

New software is constantly being created and it is essential for our system to know how to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is employed for!

The data required to select which application to utilise to open a file is taken from the files extension. A files extension holds clues to the format of the file and what sort of information it contains. A few of the more general file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .doc for documents. These general file extensions are recognized by many personal computer users, but with fresh software emerging every day, with it comes more file types which you might not have seen.
