    New File Extensions

    Things are changing so quickly that it is hard to keep track of everything. I had a call from our help desk about some file extensions such as .ani, .jpg, .gif and some others. Is there a list somewhere that tells me the definitions for each file extension?

    Thanks,
    Deborah

    Re: New File Extensions

    Chris's link is an excellent start.

    The extensions you mentioned are as follows:

    ANI = Animated Cursor
    JPG = Image, graphic format common on the Internet
    GIF = Image, graphic format common on the Internet (Compuserver GIF)

    You can find out what Windows thinks these extensions are by opening Windows Explorer, and drilling down the TOOLS => OPTIONS menu. There is a list of file types and the extensions are listed first, followed by the associated type. You can also change what program launches when you double click on one of these files here.
