Text Files

Text files contain textual data and may be saved in plain text or rich text formats. While most text files are documents created and saved by users, they can also be used by software developers to store program data. Examples of text files include word processing documents, log files, and saved email messages.

Common text file extensions include .TXT, .RTF, .LOG, and .DOCX.
