Changing the file extension of a file will change the way the computer opens the program. For example, if you change the a ".mpeg" file, which is a video clip file, to ".txt," which is a text (Word) document, the file will be opened by Wordpad or Notepad instead of a video playing program, such as RealPlayer. The data of the program, however, is not changed if you modify the file extension.
