File Extension List

Our system needs to know how to access specified files and specify what applications they are affiliated with. By examining a files extension, our computer recognizes exactly how to process that file.

The data essential to choose which program to utilize to load a file is taken from the files extension. Data regarding the type and format of information contained within a file is designated by the file extension. As an example, many typical file extensions include: .tga for images, .rar for compressed files, and .avi for video. You might already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of software and operating systems there are many more that you might have never seen.
