File Extension List

Our computer needs to know how to access specific files and specify what programs they are affiliated with. By considering a files extension, our system recognizes precisely how to access that file.

To find out which application to open a file with, your personal computer starts by gathering the necessary data by examining the files extension. A files extension holds tips to the data format of the file and what variety of data it holds. For example, some common file extensions include: .tga for pictures, .rar for packed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever growing library of software and operating systems there are much more that you might have never discovered.
