Did you ever receive a file from a friend or from an internet download and wonder how to access it? Now-a-days, many files have some sort of 3 digit extension at the end of the name (ie. sit, hqx, bin), rendering it very difficult to determine the correct application to associate with them.

Currently there are thousands of applications available for most systems, with more constantly on the way, each with its own corresponding file extension. How can you possibly remember all of these file extensions?

Enter Dot What?... Simply launch Dot What?, type in the questionable file extension, and instantly be presented with its description, recommended application to open it with, and even a corresponding web site for each application!
