File Extension List

Our system needs a way to access specified files and determine what programs they are associated with. That is exactly what a file extension is used for!

To determine which software to open a file with, your system starts by collecting the required data from the files extension. Information regarding the format and type of information carried inside a file is designated by the file extension. As an example, some common file extensions include: .jpg for images, .zip for packed files, and .avi for movies. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever growing library of software and operating systems there are much more that you may have never seen.
