Common File Types with Extensions


Each and every file has an extension. A file extension or a file name extension is the suffix at the end of a file name that indicates what kind of file it is. For example, a JPEG image file has an extension like .jpg. Similarly, you can identify a file as text file if it has an extension like .txt.


If you don't see an extension after the file name then you should turn on a setting. Just double click on My Computer then go to the Folder options. Now click on the View tab. After 8 or 9 options you will find an option named hide extensions for known file types. Just turn it off. And from now you will be able to see the file extensions of any files.

 
Some of the common file types with extensions are as below:

GTA San Andreas Cheat Code (PDF)

After Vice City, San Andreas is the most popular game released by Grand Theft Auto (GTA). Usually GTA releases role playing game. San Andreas is such a game where you can act like a person. You can do everything. You have to take part in missions and complete them. 
To make your missions easier, there are lots of cheat codes. If you can properly apply these codes, the tough parts of the game will be easier. Cheat codes are somewhat like keyboard shortcuts of computer programs. 

I've shared 63 cheat codes below. There were more cheat codes in my collection, but I've omitted the less important cheats. Effects or result of the cheats are on the left side, and the codes are on the right side. 

You can copy the following codes in your PC. And for your convenience, I've also uploaded a PDF file of these codes. You will find the download link at the bottom.

Office 2010 Activator (KMS) !!

Day by day cracking has been a tough job. But yet very possible. Earlier a software may require only serial key to activate. But today there are many other options. Sometimes you might be asked to connect to the internet to activate or sometimes you're asked to make a phone call! 






Microsoft Office 2010 has the same problem. It is not simply activated by the CD key. Sometimes CD key may not be asked during the installation process. If you're required to enter serial then try any of the following:



YF79C-7Y4B4-PGM89-6BKGJ-46PBT

I've got Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 (final version) last week. And before that I was using Office 2010. After installing Office 2013, I was unable to use it before activating. And with this KMSpico 9.1.3 my Office gets activated within minutes. It's very easy to use!
