File Extension List

New software is constantly being developed and it is important for our system to know how to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By looking at a files extension, our personal computer recognizes precisely how to process that file.

The data needed to select which application to use to open a file is read by examining the files extension. Data regarding the format and type of data contained within a file is designated by the file extension. Some of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .doc for documents. You might already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always growing library of applications and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never seen.
