A file extensions can be considered a type or metadata. They are commonly used to imply information. Some extensions limit the length of the extension up to three letters or numbers. The dot character is just another file name it is what separates the title from the file extension. like for example story.dos. DOS stands for Microsoft. Each file extension will stand for something. A file extension can be used with any title or any project, you or a student are working on. The file extension was used to easily determine the file's generic type. File extensions started to become associated with certain products. That is when they made the three letter or number extensions. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!!! SMILE!!! YES, CLAP PLEASE!!!!!
