File Extension List

New programs are always being created and it is essential for our computer to know how to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. That is precisely what a file extension is used for!

The data necessary to choose which application to utilise to load a file is taken by examining the files extension. A files extension holds clues to the format of the file and what sort of information it carries. For example, some common file extensions include: .jpg for images, .zip for packed files, and .mov for movies. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever developing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you may have never discovered.
