File Extension List

Our system needs to know how to access specified files and determine what software they are associated with. By looking at a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to access that file.

To find out which application to access a file with, your computer starts by gathering the necessary information from the files extension. Data regarding the format and type of information contained within a file is indicated by a file extension. For example, many general file extensions include: .gif for images, .zip for compressed files, and .avi for movies. You might already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always growing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
