File Extension List

New programs are always being developed and it is important for our system to know how to tell what sort of file it is accessing. That is precisely what a file extension is for!

The information required to select which software to utilise to access a file is taken from the files extension. A files extension contains clues to the formatting of the file and what kind of data it carries. For example, many common file extensions include: .jpg for images, .zip for packed files, and .mov for video. You might already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the ever developing library of programs and operating systems there are a lot more that you might have never seen.
