4 Application Software  “I’ve got an app for that”  “App” is short for application software  Application software  a computer program that performs a specific function(s) for the user IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 4

5 Application Software  Types of applications  Graphic application software lets you edit image files.  There are many software applications that play songs and videos.  Executable program files launch specific software or application packages IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 5

6 ASSIGNMENT 1 – DUE TODAY  LOOK ON YOUR PHONE OR ON THE COMPUTER AND FIND 10 APPS THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED IN THE LAST YEAR AND ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:  WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE APP, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?  WHAT DOES IT DO SPECIFICALLY?  HOW CAN SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT THE APP FIND EXACTLY HOW TO GET TO IT?  FIND A PICTURE OF THE ICON THAT REPRESENTS THE APP AND PASTE IT ON YOUR PAPER  IF YOU COULD CHANGE THE APP, HOW WOULD YOU?  HOW MANY STARS WOULD YOU RATE THE APP (FROM 1 TO 5)?  TYPE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN MICROSOFT WORD AND PRINT BEFORE THE END OF CLASS. 6

7 File Extensions  Using the “my computer” icon or “my files” icon/folder, you can view a list of files contained on your computer.  Each file displays an icon, the filename, and an extension.  The filename is followed by a period and then an extension.

8 File Extensions  You can identify a file by its extension .bmp,.jpeg,.jpg,.tiff,.tif,.gif, and.png are examples of image or graphic files .mpeg4,.mp4,.avi,.mov, and.wmv are examples of video files IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 8

9 File Extensions .mp2,.mp3,.mp4 (or.mpeg4),.wav,.avi,.wma,.mid are examples of audio files .exe and.bat executable program files IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 9

10 File Extensions  Identify a file by its extension: .bmp,.avi,.exe., jpeg or jpeg,.mp2, mp3,.wav,.wmv,.bat,.tif or.tiff,.gif,.png., wma,.mpeg4, mp4,.mid.,.pdf, ppt., doc.,.exl IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 10 Image FilesAudio Files Video Files Executable Program Files SOFTWARE PROGRAM

12 Choosing the Right Application  Choose the correct application to open your file according to its type and extension  Every computer comes with software that can open picture, video, and audio files. These are generally the “default” programs used when files of this type are accessed. However, you are not limited to these programs. There are many to choose from.

14 File Manipulations  You can create as many folders as you need  You could create a folder named Processing Files and save all your letters and reports in this folder  You could create folders named for each of the classes you are taking this year  There are many different ways to organize folders and files  Use the method according to your instructor’s directions IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 14

15 File Manipulations  To create a copy of an existing file  Right-click on the filename  On the drop down menu that appears, choose Copy  Right-click in a blank area of the screen  On the drop down menu that appears, choose Paste  You will see the original file and the copied file  The copied file will have the word copy in the filename IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 15

16 File Manipulations  To rename an existing file  Right-click on the filename  On the drop down menu that appears, choose Rename  The filename will then be highlighted—just start typing the new name  Be sure to leave the extension and the period at the end  Strike the enter key when finished IT: Principles of Information Technology – Identifying File Types, Purposes, and Extensions Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 16
