File Extension List

New software is always being developed and it is important for our system to know how to distinguish what kind of file it is accessing. By examining a files extension, our computer knows precisely how to make use of that file.

To find out which software to load a file with, your system first collects the needed data from the files extension. Data regarding the type and format of information carried inside a file is indicated by a file extension. As an example, many typical file extensions include: .tga for pictures, .rar for packed files, and .mov for movies. You may already be familiar with these typical extensions but with the always developing library of software and operating systems there are a lot more that you may have never seen.
