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

To find out which software to access a file with, your system first gathers the essential data by examining the files extension. A files extension holds hints to the format of the file and what variety of data it holds. For example, some common file extensions include: .jpg for pictures, .zip for packed files, and .avi for movies. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always developing library of applications and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
