File Extension List

New software is always being produced and it is important for our computer to be able to distinguish what sort of file it is accessing. By viewing a files extension, our pc knows precisely how to process that file.

To find out which application to access a file with, your computer first collects the needed information by examining the files extension. A files extension holds clues to the formatting of the file and what sort of data it carries. As an example, many general file extensions include: .tga for pictures, .rar for packed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the always developing library of programs and operating systems there are many more that you might have never discovered.
