New software is constantly being created and it is important for our system to be able to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. That is precisely what a file extension is for!

The data required to select which program to utilize to open a file is learned by examining the files extension. A files extension contains hints to the data format of the file and what sort of data it carries. For example, many general file extensions include: .tga for images, .rar for packed files, and .avi for video. These common file extensions are well known to many personal computer users, but with fresh programs being created every day, with it comes new file types which you may not be familiar with.
