DOS (and consequently any Windows application before Windows 95) has specific rules for the way in which any files created can be named. A file name in a DOS-based system (PCs) has two parts; the root and the extension separated by a full-stop e.g. myfile.doc (the root has a maximum of eight letters, the extension just three). The root is the name the user chooses to give his/her file, the extension can also be used to identify files but DOS and Windows programmes use them to identify certain types of files. For example, the doc extension is used by The Word Word-processor, the txt extension by the Notepad application, the wps extension is used by Works etc. Windows 95 got rid of the need for extensions and allows the user to have much larger file names (though it secretly converts everything to DOS itself).
