File Extension List

New software is always being created and it is essential for our computer to know how to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. By viewing a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to access that file.

The data required to select which program to utilize to access a file is learned from the files extension. Information about the type and format of data contained within a file is indicated by the file extension. For example, many general file extensions include: .gif for pictures, .zip for packed files, and .mov for movies. These general file extensions are well known to many personal computer users, but with fresh software coming every day, with it comes more file types which you might not be familiar with.
