Determine Associated Program from File Extension
Every file is made up of a file name followed by a file extension with a period "." connecting the two. The file extension (i.e., .docx, .pdf, .mp3) indicates which program created and/or can open the associated file type.
A wonderful online resource exists to help you translate the file extension and thereby determine the associated program.
