File Extension List

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

To detect which software to open a file with, your pc starts by gathering the needed information from the files extension. A files extension contains clues to the data format of the file and what sort of information it contains. As an example, some general file extensions include: .jpg for images, .rar for compressed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always developing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never discovered.
