File Extension List

New programs are constantly being created and it is important for our personal computer to be able to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By examining a files extension, our computer knows exactly how to process that file.

The data essential to choose which software to use to load a file is taken from the files extension. Information about the type and format of data carried within a file is designated by a file extension. A few of the most frequent file extensions include .exe for executables, .mp3 for sound, and .txt for plain text. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always growing library of applications and operating systems there are many more that you may have never seen.
