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.
