FILExt.com has become a definitive website for information on file extension names, their function and the programs they are associated with.
(PRWEB) November 6, 2009
For the past few years, Uniblue’s processlibrary.com has been an invaluable source of process-related information for millions of Windows users. Having now acquired FILExt.com, Uniblue can offer more information resources than ever before.
FILExt.com is a database of file extensions and the various programs that use them. Launched in 2000, FILExt.com has become a definitive website for information on file extension names, their function and the programs they are associated with. Uniblue has now acquired the domain and has re-designed the website, so now it is even easier to use. When PC users see the pop-up stating that Windows does not recognize a particular file extension name, FILExt.com can help.
Users can simply go to the FILExt.com homepage and enter the file extension into the search box on the homepage. If it is in the FILExt database, the data we have on that file extension will be presented on a results page. If no information is found you will be given a link to a page with hints on how to do further research.
In addition to searching directly from the website’s homepage, there are several plugins that can be downloaded for ease and convenience:
- Directly from Windows. Use FILExt Direct to make Windows automatically launch a broswer search on FILExt when you click on a file Windows does not recognize.
- Google Toolbar. Add a button to your Google toolbar so when you highlight a file extension and click on the button you come directly to FILExt with your search.
- Firefox Search. Add FILExt to your Firefox search box and come directly via a search box entry.
- Google Desktop Gadget. FILExt has a Google Desktop Gadget which allows you to add basic search to your desktop with links to specific pages once you have found what you want.
- Mobile Device Browser. Using a Boopsie channel you can query the FILExt database using a mobile device like a web-enabled phone.
Uniblue believes that FILExt.com is a site that is invaluable for PC users at any level.
