    Hello all, I remember reading in a computer magazine about some website that is able to determine an unknown file by entering the name of that file into its text box.
    I think it is able to determine what kind of file it is.
    The problem is I cannot remember what the website is called.
    Can anyone reading this query, come up with the name of this website?
    Thanks
    Cheers
    John

    Hi, You can use the site posted below, if you know the extension of the file, to see what programs open it and work with it.

    http://filext.com/

    Is that what you had in mind?

    Here is a site that can give you yardfuls of info any kind of file type....you download a text file about which ones you want the info for. Pretty technical but fairly useful if you need that sort of info.

    The link goes to the Windows Files list but there are a ton and half more.
