File Extension List

New applications are always being created and it is essential for our computer to be able to tell what sort of file it is accessing. By examining a files extension, our pc knows precisely how to access that file.

The data required to choose which application to use to access a file is taken by examining the files extension. Data regarding the type and format of information contained within a file is designated by a file extension. For example, some typical file extensions include: .tga for images, .zip for compressed files, and .avi 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.
