    Is there a software or tools which lets us know the exact file type. IrfanView is good for graphics file. If any image file with wrong extension or (without any extension) is

    opened within IV, it lets us know the exact file extension.

    But I am in search for the sw, that lets us know any type (or most popular type) of file. It does not necessary have to show the content, but should be able to display the

    application name and version in which it was created.

    I can recognize few graphics file and executable (.exe) file by opening them in text editor. The first few characters is enough to recognize the file.

    First few characters which means the file is
    ============== ===================
    BM ------->Bitmap File
    GIF89a ------->GIF file
    ‰PNG ------->PNG File
    PK -------> Winzip or (PKZIP) file
    MZ -------> Executable file (exe, dll, cpl)
    ??JFIF -------> JPEG file
    %PDF -------> PDF file
    RIFF??WAVEfmt -------> Wave sound file

    ========================================
    ?? ----> means some characters
