File Extension List

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

To determine which application to access a file with, your computer first collects the necessary information by examining the files extension. A files extension carries clues to the format of the file and what variety of information it carries. Some of the more general file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for audio, and .txt for plain text. You might already be familiar with these general extensions but with the always developing library of applications and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never discovered.
