File Extension List

Our personal computer needs to know how to access specified files and specify what programs they are affiliated with. By viewing a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to access that file.

The data needed to select which application to use to open a file is read by examining the files extension. Data regarding the type and format of information carried inside a file is indicated by a file extension. A few of the most general file extensions include .exe for executables, .wav for sound, and .txt for plain text. You might already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always growing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
