File Extension List

Our pc requires a way to access specific files and specify what programs they are associated with. By examining a files extension, our computer recognizes exactly how to process that file.

The information necessary to select which program to utilize to access a file is learned by examining the files extension. A files extension carries tips to the data format of the file and what kind of data it carries. As an example, many typical file extensions include: .tga for pictures, .rar for compressed files, and .mov for movies. You may already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never discovered.
