Study Notes

File Saving and Opening Process

  • When you save a file in an application program, the application writes the file data to a storage device, such as a hard drive, solid state drive, or flash drive, in a specific format.

File Opening Process in Windows

  • When you open a file in Windows, the operating system checks the file extension to determine which application is associated with that file type.
  • Windows then launches the associated application and passes the file name to the application, allowing it to open and read the file.

Default Application for File Type

  • The default application for opening a specific file type in Windows is determined by the file association, which is stored in the Windows registry.
  • The file association links a specific file extension to a particular application, ensuring that the correct application is launched when you open a file with that extension.
