What are File Extensions?
A file extension is also known as a file name extension. It is a suffix appended to the end of a file name to indicate what kind of file type it is. You can easily know a file extension of a file, as it's separated from the file name by a dot. For example, the file extension of yourfile.doc is "doc" that tells the Windows that it's a Microsoft Word document. So the Windows will use Microsoft Office to open this kind of files. You can change your file name to anything you want, but you can't change its file extension, otherwise your file cannot be opened properly.
