File Extension List

Our system needs to know how to access specific files and specify what applications they are associated with. That is precisely what a file extension is employed for!

To find out which application to access a file with, your system first gathers the essential data from the files extension. Data about the format and type of information carried within a file is designated by the file extension. For example, some general file extensions include: .gif for images, .rar for packed files, and .avi for video. You may already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always growing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you might have never seen.
