What are file formats?

 A computer file format is a particular way to encode information for storage on a computer.

 Some file formats such as .pub, or .docx – may not open on a MAC as they need the file reader or program that created the file.

The .docx file can be opened on the Mac if the Microsoft Office Word program has been downloaded. Whereas .pub files are a Microsoft Publishing program that is not available on Mac computers.
