Judging a File By Its Last Name…

Exploring folders will also key you off as to file type – in which application was it created and can it be viewed? Here is a listing of some common FILE EXTENSIONS you will see:

.DOC – Microsoft Word Processing Document

.MDB – Microsoft Access Database

.PPT – Microsoft PowerPoint

.HTML – Hypertext Markup Language (Internet bookmarks or web pages)

.RP – Student Writing Center Report

.GBF - IG Pro (Gradebook file)

.INS - Inspiration

.KID - Kidspiration

.BMP, .GIF, .JPEG – Types of graphic files

.ASX - Video Streaming file

Note: Every application will generate a unique extension as part of the file name.
