What is this site about?
This site was created for people who have problems creating files. It can be a drag sometimes, you want a text file but just don't know how to obtain one. I used to have to go call my father to come show me how, it was embarrassing. Now you have no excuse.
My isn't my file extension listed?
I chose the most popular file extension on the interweb (internet) for this site. If I get enough request for a specific extension or some other extension becomes the next web phenomenon then I will add it.
What is a 7z file?

What is a bmp file?
Bmp is an extension that can usually be created and open by most paint programs, including Microsoft Paint which is the default program in Microsoft Windows or Preview on Mac's OSX. The bmp file format is a lossless image file format used to store bitmap digital images, especially on Microsoft Windows. Many older graphical user interfaces used bitmaps in their built-in graphics subsystems; for example, the Microsoft Windows GDI subsystem, where the specific format used is the Windows bitmap file format, usually named with the file extension of .bmp.

What is a doc file?
Doc file extension can be created and viewed by Microsoft Wordpad or by Preview on the OSX. In computing, doc (an abbreviation of 'document') is a file extension for word processing documents; most commonly for Microsoft Word. Historically, the extension was used for documentation in plain-text format, particularly of programs or computer hardware, on a wide range of operating systems. Binary doc files often contain more text formatting information (as well as scripts and undo information) than files using other document file formats like Rich Text Format (rtf) and HyperText Markup Language (html or htm), but are usually less widely compatible.

What is a docx file?
Docx is a completely open standard file format that can be open by most popular word processors like Microsoft Word 2007 (or greater), OpenOffice, or Preview on Mac's OSX. Docx is a combination of xml architecture and zip compression for size reduction and was originally developed by Microsoft for representing word processing documents.

What is a gif file?
Gif is an extension that can usually be created and open by most paint programs, including Microsoft Paint which is the default program in Microsoft Windows or Preview on Mac's OSX. The Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a lossy bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability. The format supports up to 8 bits per pixel thus allowing a single image to reference a palette of up to 256 distinct colors. The colors are chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of 256 colors for each frame. The color limitation makes the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

What is a jpg file?
Jpg is an extension that can usually be created and open by most paint programs, including Microsoft Paint which is the default program in Microsoft Windows or Preview on Mac's OSX. In computing, JPEG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for photographic images. The term "JPEG" is an acronym for the Joint Photographic Experts Group which created the standard. The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality. JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality. JPEG/Exif is the most common image format used by digital cameras and other photographic image capture devices; along with JPEG/JFIF, it is the most common format for storing and transmitting photographic images on the World Wide Web.

What is a pdf file?
Pdf file can generally be viewed by Adobe PDF Reader or Foxit Reader. Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format created by Adobe Systems in 1993 for document exchange. Adobe PDF is used for representing two-dimensional documents in a manner independent of the application software, hardware, and operating system. Each Adobe PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout 2D document that includes the text, fonts, images, and 2D vector graphics which compose the documents.

What is a png file?
PNG is an extension that can usually be created and open by most paint programs, including Microsoft Paint which is the default program in Microsoft Windows or Preview on Mac's OSX. Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve upon and replace GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) as an image-file format not requiring a patent license. The PNG acronym is optionally recursive, unofficially standing for PNG's Not GIF. PNG supports palette-based (palettes of 24-bit RGB or 32-bit RGBA colors), greyscale, RGB, or RGBA images. PNG was designed for transferring images on the Internet, not for print graphics, and so does not support color spaces (such as CMYK).

What is a ppt file?
Ppt file format that can be open by Microsoft Powerpoint, OpenOffice, or Apple Keynote. PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides". The "slide" analogy is a reference to the slide projector, a device that can be seen as obsolete, within the context of widespread use of PowerPoint and other presentation software. Slides may contain text, graphics, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely on the slide. PowerPoint, however, facilitates the use of a consistent style in a presentation using a template or "Slide Master".

What is a tif (tiff) file?
TIF is an extension that can usually be created and open by most paint programs, including Microsoft Paint which is the default program in Microsoft Windows or Preview on Mac's OSX. Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for storing images, popular among Apple Macintosh owners, graphic artists, the publishing industry, and both amateur and professional photographers in general. As of 2009, it is under the control of Adobe Systems. Originally created by the company Aldus for use with what was then called "desktop publishing", the TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications, by publishing and page layout applications, by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition and other applications. Adobe Systems, which acquired Aldus, now holds the copyright to the TIFF specification. TIFF has not had a major update since 1992, though several Aldus/Adobe technical notes have been published with minor extensions to the format, and several specifications, including TIFF/EP (ISO 12234-2) and TIFF/IT (ISO 12639) have been based on the TIFF 6.0 specification.

What is a txt file?
TXT files can generally be open by any text editor like Microsoft Notepad, or TextEdit on Mac's OSX. A text file (sometimes spelled "textfile": an old alternate name is "flatfile") is a kind of computer file that is structured as a sequence of lines. A text file exists within a computer file system. The end of a text file is often denoted by placing one or more special characters, known as an end-of-file marker, after the last line in a text file. "Text file" refers to a type of container, while plain text refers to a type of content. Text files can contain plain text, but they are not limited to such.

What is a xls file?
XLS file format that can be open by Microsoft Excel, or OpenOffice. Microsoft Excel has the basic features of all spreadsheets, using a grid of cells arranged in numbered rows and letter-named columns to organize data manipulations like arithmetic operations. It has a battery of supplied functions to answer statistical, engineering and financial needs. In addition, it can display data as line graphs, histograms and charts, and with a very limited three-dimensional graphical display.

What is a zip file?
The ZIP file format is a data compression and archive format that can be open by default by Windows or Mac's OSX. A ZIP file contains one or more files that have been compressed to reduce file size, or stored as-is. The ZIP file format permits a number of compression algorithms, but as of 2009, the Deflate method continues to be dominant. The format was originally created in 1989 by Phil Katz for PKZIP, as a replacement for the previous ARC compression format by Thom Henderson. The PKZIP format is now supported by many software utilities other than PKZIP.
