Hello Tarissa,

I am not quite sure what you mean. You may want to leave a bit more information on what it is you are trying to accomplish in a comment below. That may help me get a grasp on the idea. Below is a bit of general information on changing file types.

Some file types can be changed simply by renaming them as long as they are coded correctly. For example php, html, and txt files can be renamed to one another. This can vastly change the behavior of the file, however.

Other file types such as video, audio, and image files cannot simply be changed. They would need to be recompiled into the new format via some type of program.

Best Regards,
Scott M
