Extensions

Hi I am trying to figure out what the extensions mean as there are so many, Like pdf, exe, gif, and so on. I would like to know what they all mean.

Thank you...

It tells Windows how to deal with it so exe is a program to run, PDF is a PDF file, gif jpg are photos the list is endless many firms when writing software will use their own for data

Just my thought.

Slow down Danny.
You can't learn it all and for sure you can't learn it all at once.
Read a lot of threads and the posts in those threads.
You will learn a lot but it takes time.

I have learned a lot monitoring this forum. What I have learned is just a small amount compared to the knowledge of many members. Evey day I try to learn something new.

Example:
One can't know all words and the meanings of all those words.
One just needs to know where to find that information when needed. The dictionary.
