New applications are constantly being developed and it is essential for our computer to be able to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By looking at a files extension, our personal computer knows precisely how to make use of that file.

The information needed to select which program to use to load a file is taken by examining the files extension. Information regarding the type and format of data carried inside a file is indicated by the file extension. For example, many common file extensions include: .tga for images, .rar for packed files, and .avi for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever developing library of software and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
