File extensions are the key to opening a file!
File extensions are the short suffixes that appear after the filename. They are used to indicate the file type. In their early use, file extensions were used to indicate the generic type of a file. For example, .txt was used for a text file, and file extension .gfx for a graphics file. However, over time, file extensions have become connected with certain programs or even versions of that program. A .doc file indicates a Microsoft Word document, while a .docx file extension means it was created using Word 2007 or a later version. Use the index below to locate file extensions and click on the links to learn about their file types and the programs that support them.

File extension is that portion at the end of a filename (suffix) that describes its file type. The file extension can be from one to several characters long and can be usually identified easily since the filename and its extension are separated by a “.” like for example “computer.jpg” which indicates that the jpg part is the file extension for that file. JPG is a well known format which is basically an image file. JPG images are commonly found on web pages because of their small size.
Different applications are required to open different types of files based on their file type. Information about file type associations and the applications which are allowed to open them is stored in windows registry. This website contains a comprehensive database of file extensions.
