File Extension List

Our computer needs to know how to access particular files and specify what applications they are associated with. By looking at a files extension, our personal computer knows exactly how to process that file.

To determine which software to access a file with, your pc first gathers the required information by examining the files extension. A files extension carries tips to the data format of the file and what variety of information it carries. For example, many general file extensions include: .jpg for pictures, .rar for packed files, and .avi for movies. You may already be familiar with these general extensions but with the always growing library of applications and operating systems there are much more that you may have never seen.
