File Extension List

New programs are always being developed and it is essential for our computer to be able to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is employed for!

The information essential to select which program to utilise to open a file is taken from the files extension. Data about the type and format of information carried inside a file is designated by the file extension. As an example, many typical file extensions include: .gif for pictures, .rar for compressed files, and .avi for movies. You may already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the ever developing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you might have never seen.
