File Extension List

New software is constantly being produced and it is essential for our personal computer to be able to tell what kind of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is used for!

To find out which software to access a file with, your computer starts by collecting the required data from the files extension. A files extension contains hints to the formatting of the file and what kind of data it contains. A few of the most common file extensions include .exe for executables, .mp3 for sound, and .txt for plain text. You may already be familiar with these general extensions but with the ever developing library of applications and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never discovered.
