File Extension List

New programs are always being produced and it is essential for our system to know how to tell what kind of file it is accessing. That is exactly what a file extension is used for!

The data required to choose which application to utilise to access a file is read from the files extension. Data regarding the format and type of data carried inside a file is designated by a file extension. As an example, many typical file extensions include: .tga for pictures, .zip for compressed files, and .mov for video. You may already be familiar with these common extensions but with the ever growing library of programs and operating systems there are much more that you may have never seen.
