File Extension List

To determine which program to access a file with, your computer first collects the required information from the files extension. A files extension contains tips to the formatting of the file and what variety of data it holds. Some of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .txt for plain text. These typical file extensions are recognized by many pc users, but with new software emerging each day, with it comes new file types which you might not have seen.
